Student Life

Making the most of your student life is as important to your experience as the course you study. We are a collaborative, inclusive, supportive and fun campus offering you the chance to make great memories as you prepare for a successful future.

Students Union and Student Voice

Student Union and Student Voice represents the needs and views of our student body and it’s the door to endless opportunities and possibilities on campus. It’s a great way to make new friends, join clubs, attend events, access health and wellbeing initiatives and benefit from a wide range of savings.

Term Dates & Absences

A high level of attendance is important for your wellbeing and progression whilst demonstrating the value and respect you have in the education you are being provided. If you can’t attend, you must follow the absence reporting procedure which you will find here along with a full list of term dates.

Student & Staff Awards

We love to celebrate success and our fantastic awards evenings and graduation ceremonies give us the perfect opportunity to honour your success and the staff that have supported you. We recognise your hard work, effort and achievements, whatever your preferred learning path.

Alongside academic achievement, we also acknowledge attendance and attitude, salute our top apprentices and celebrate results in external competitions.

Learning Resource Centre

With access to six LRC’s across the campus, you have a great option for group or individual study outside of the classroom. They offer the perfect environment to review, research and expand your learning, with access to an extensive range of information and electronic, IT, media and printed resources. All our centres are supported by our dedicated LRC teams.

How to Apply

With hundreds of courses available we know you’ll be spoilt for choice, but remember we are here to help you make the right choice. The application process is easy to follow and offers access to any additional help you may require during the process.
