Teesside University

United Kingdom


In the heart of the multicultural town of Middlesbrough, Teesside University boasts a state-of-the-art campus and a safe and friendly place for students to focus on their studies.

The university prides itself on wellbeing and student satisfaction, with a range of individual support services and advice available via the Student Life building, a student-centred space designed to further improve the student experience and promote wellbeing.

The university has a rich heritage which informs its innovative, dynamic and energetic environment. The institution has grown significantly in recent years, with four regional offices in China, India, Malaysia and Nigeria. Teesside University has a global network of partners and students, graduates and staff who are internationally connected.

Following over GBP 275 million in investments, Teesside has transformed its campus to reinforce its commitment to providing an outstanding student and learning experience. The exciting newly-completed National Horizons Centre also puts Teesside University at the heart of exciting UK-wide industry developments in bio-based industries. Other recent developments include the Student Life building for all student facing services, a new GBP 7 million library refurbishment and a modernised business school.

Students can explore the beautiful surrounding countryside including the North York Moors, as well as cultural offerings like the MIMA gallery, which is part of the university.

Teesside has embraced cutting-edge digital technology to completely change the way that students learn, Future Facing Learning, which puts Teesside in a really good place to deliver the online elements of study.

Covid-19 measures

The university is continuing to develop its plans for the new academic year, considering the latest government advice and guidelines.

Teesside University intends to start the academic year as planned in September 2020 for all students. However, the university plans to adopt a hybrid teaching model. This means students can expect to spend some time learning online and on campus, in line with current UK government social distancing restrictions. Teesside hope to be able to give students the benefits of facilities and resources as a key part of the education experience, but students should also be able to complete parts of the course at a time and a pace that suits them.

Teesside University has a strong track record of innovation in teaching and learning, and its Future Facing Learning approach puts it in a really good place to deliver online elements of study.

For the most current Covid-19 advice and guidance information from Teesside University please visit its dedicated international students FAQs webpage.

Teesside University Students' Union (TUSU) remains closed at present as it continues to follow guidance from both government and the university. It is, however, planning for at least some of its services to be available from early September 2020, and hopes that this can include the SU Welcome Desk and at least one member of the SU Activities team available each day.
