Dedicated to employability
We take pride in helping our students reach their goals and succeed in their careers. All of our undergraduate courses include some form of work-related learning, such as a placement, client project or on-campus work experience, and many courses are accredited by professional bodies.
Budding entrepreneurs can even launch their business ideas with the support and guidance of our business incubator – Accelerator. Our international graduates looking to work in the UK after their studies will even be assisted in finding work opportunities with Tier-2 sponsoring employers.
