Staffordshire University is among the top 50 universities in the UK (Guardian University Guide), was the winner of the Most Improved Student Experience award (Times Higher Education awards 2018) and 78% of its research is rated as world-leading or of international importance by the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
The university has invested over GBP 30 million in revamping its campus with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. With an impressive motion capture studio, a cutting-edge TV studio and newsroom, sports science labs and a purpose-built law courtroom, students can trust that they are using the latest equipment that will help them in their pursuit of a job after their studies.
Staffordshire University was given a ‘Silver’ award in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), as a result of excellent standards of teaching and learning on offer at the institution. The faculty are experts in their field, and often work with industry leaders to ensure that students are learning things that will benefit them when they move into the world of work. This is reinforced by the fact that 95.6% of students that graduated from Staffordshire last summer are in employment or further study already.
The campus at Staffordshire University is safe and friendly, and has a welcoming environment for international students. The Students’ Union features a variety of ways for new students to get involved in the university community, including offering more than 80 different clubs, societies and activities.
Based in Stoke-on-Trent in the middle of England, Staffordshire University provides students with the perfect base from which to explore the rest of the country. With Manchester, Birmingham and London under 90 minutes away on the train, students have easy access to some of the most famous cities in Europe.
