Preparing for university

There are a few key things to consider before starting university

In addition to deciding on what you’d like to study, you’ll need to consider whether you’ll study full­ time or part­ time, as well as how to finance your studies. You may also need to arrange accommodation or brush up on your study skills. If you have any questions about getting set for university, you can contact us at any time.

Study options

As well as our extensive choice of degrees, we also offer flexibility. You may study full-­time or part­-time, on-campus, online or a combination of both. Any degree, especially one involving research or work placements, requires serious dedication and support options are available to help balance your commitments.
