Modern, interactive classrooms

Modern, interactive classrooms

Each classroom has the latest learning technology and there's plenty of space for you to study in a relaxed environment. It’s so easy to get involved here – you won’t just be sitting and listening to someone talk. You’ll be learning through interacting and doing.

Learning beyond the classroom

Learning beyond the classroom

You’ll also have access to Succeed, the University’s virtual learning environment. This means you can download lecture notes and course content on the move. And you can take part in online discussions with classmates and your tutors.

The Learning Resource Centre is a dedicated learning space containing study areas and items to borrow. You’ll find books, DVDs, journals, CDs and newspapers there. Need to print or scan something? Come along to the Learning Resource Centre.

Cafés on campus

Cafés on campus

It’s important to take regular breaks while studying. For times when you need to refuel, you’ll find a huge variety of cafés and different places to eat on campus.

You’ll find light meals such as sandwiches, salads and soups throughout campus. When you need something more filling, there are burgers, nachos, pizza, macaroni cheese and so much more. You’re never too far from a freshly brewed coffee, lunch or snack.

Your safe space

Your safe space

The Centre is home to support staff dedicated to you. If you have a problem with something personal or your accommodation, they are there to help. No matter how big or small the issue is, they’ll do everything they can to solve it.

When the day ends, our support doesn’t. You’ll be given an emergency telephone number when you arrive. You can call this number any time or day or night if you need us. In the accommodation, you’ll find residential tutors. They are available 24 hours a day if you need help with anything.
