Our students are amongst the happiest in the UK, and they love studying here – proven by the fact that we have consistently high ratings for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey. There are a number of reasons as to why our students are so happy, including the excellent facilities they have right here on campus, the support they receive from before they’ve even started studying here, and the fact that they continue to receive that support up until graduation and beyond.
We have a wide range of facilities, ranging from our very own cinema, cafes and a gym through to subject-specific state-of-the-art facilities, such as the Archaeology lab, the Business hub, our theatre, the Human Performance Laboratory and much more besides. Our students enjoy full use of these facilities throughout their studies here with us and we are always looking to improve our campus and what we have to offer.
We’re being bold, expanding our horizons and looking to make life better for all our students. Our most recent University Strategy outlines how we intend to deliver a portfolio of courses which is not only attractive to students but also fully equips them for the world of work or further study. In recent years we’ve built new additions to our campus (for example our brand new state-of-the-art flexible teaching spaces in Constance Stewart Hall) and developed a suite of new degree courses (Counselling, Sociology, Health & Social Care and Business, to name a few) and we don’t plan to stop there. There are more developments in the pipeline which will grow our university and improve the experience for our students.
