It's not all work and no play. You will have many opportunities to get involved in non-academic activities whilst studying with us – no matter which campus you choose.
You will automatically become a member of the Students' Union, which enhances and improves your student and academic experience. It does this by having a strong representation structure led by a dedicated Students' Union President, student representatives and clubs and societies.
Our online accommodation portal provides helpful advice on choosing a property to rent near your campus as well as a property listings search for students who have accepted at our university.
