It is an exciting period for the University as we continue with our transformation and development programme, driving an industry-leading learner experience and further developing our innovative ‘compressed-blended’ full time degrees across 5 campus locations. We are ambitious in our growth plans, and have just set out our 5 year strategy, which involves developing new courses, expanding into more countries across the globe and continuing to provide our students with a first-class education experience, accessible in a flexible and convenient way.

We are a values driven organisation, and in line with our values of supportiveness, integrity, pioneering spirit, collective energy and empowerment, we want to make sure that each of our study centres is delivering an outstanding student experience that is completely aligned to our brand promise, whilst providing a tailored and personalised experience reflective of the local needs and culture of the student and staff profile.
