Our specialist campuses each have their own personality and attractions.
We offer a wide range of degrees, courses and apprenticeships at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
You’ll be joining a community of students and expert lecturers who challenge each other to discover new things. We offer over 4,000 placements and internships to help you prepare for your graduate career. We’re a community with sustainability at its heart. Sustainability is woven into our degree courses and our aim is to be carbon net zero by 2030.
We offer a wide range of degrees, courses and apprenticeships at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Typically you’ll learn theory from industry experts and put your learning into practice in course work, real-world projects, placements and field trips.
An undergraduate degree is usually the first academic degree you complete. You’ll usually need to have A Levels, BTEC or equivalent qualifications to start a degree, or relevant life/work experience. Most courses include a mix of lectures, discussions, placements, field trips, research and coursework.
Our professional courses are designed specifically for professionals who have some experience of work within industry. The nature of professional study means you’ll learn with people from a wide range of occupations. Our professional courses vary in length and entry requirements so please check the course pages for more details.
Gain a university qualification through a programme that combines work and study. You’ll need to be employed in a relevant role, as apprenticeships are a partnership arrangement between employers and employees. Both sides benefit as you’ll put your learning into practice in the workplace.
Higher and degree apprenticeships
Short courses offer a range of opportunities to improve your knowledge and sharpen your skills, both personally and professionally. They’re also a good opportunity to try something new. If you can’t see a short course that meets your requirements, we can tailor or create new courses that meet your organisational needs.
On a postgraduate taught qualification you’ll have a timetable of taught modules. Our postgraduate courses include Master’s degrees, doctorates (PhDs) and postgraduate diplomas. Usually you need a good honours degree or equivalent to study a postgraduate qualification, though other qualifications, skills and experience will also be considered.
Successfully completing a research degree would give you a Master’s in Research (MRes). You’ll define your own area of research enquiry and devise methods to answer the questions you construct. Usually you’ll need a good Honours degree or equivalent to start a research degree, but other qualifications, skills and experience will also be considered.
As well as gaining a university qualification and exploring your interests off campus, we’ll also help you develop Your Future Plan. We’ll help you to look into career opportunities and arrange the placements and work experience you’ll need to progress.
