Commuter Students

Many of our students already live close to their chosen campus with their families and commute to study their course. Over 70% of our undergraduate students are commuters.


All our campuses are close to key transport routes, major train stations or bus routes, so whether you’re living at home, or in a brand new city, you can get to campus easily. To learn more about our campuses, check out our locations page.

Support we offer for our commuter students

  • Our small group teaching model is designed around enabling you to get to know your fellow students, and if you can’t always attend classes, all of our course materials can be accessed online which makes learning on the go easier than ever.
  • Our campuses hold regular social events, tailored to our commuter students. These can be a great way of socialising with your peers and integrating as a group. We also encourage students to get involved with clubs and societies.
  • Our dedicated Welfare team are there to support you if you need some practical advice, or guidance on how to improve your mental wellbeing when commuting to our campuses as commuting can come with its own specific challenges: financial pressures, early mornings/late nights and reliance on public transport systems and/or personal transport options.
