Student experience

You'll be offered academic, pastoral and professional support services to ensure the best possible student experience.

Every student has a personal tutor. This relationship is supported by the University's NU Reflect system.

We maintain high standards of teaching and academic guidance. We also provide access to professional support services on:

  • health and wellbeing
  • accommodation
  • finance
  • careers

Learning environment

Our courses all have close links to industry. This means that academic aims and objectives are complemented by 'real world' insight.

We regularly review our curriculum in line with current and future trends. We take the time to peer assess the quality of our activities.

This makes sure that students engage, enjoy and apply their learning.
