We are the Connected University.
We’ve invested £75 million over the last few years in new buildings, digitally enabled learning spaces and state-of-the-art facilities. And we work hard to make sure our people are among the best in the business. When you study with us, you get all the support your need to achieve your goals and get to where you want to be.
A silver award in the Teaching Excellence Framework recognises our excellent standard of learning and teaching. We have an outstanding track record on employability with 97.5% of 2016 graduates now employed or in further study.*
Our main city campus is in Stoke-on-Trent, and we have two Centres of Excellence in Healthcare Education in Stafford and Shrewsbury. Stoke-on-Trent is a great place to live – it recently made the shortlist for UK City of Culture 2021 – and it’s also among the top ten most affordable places to live in the UK.
The University is made up of six academic Schools:
- Business, Leadership and Economics
- Creative Arts and Engineering
- Computing and Digital Technologies
- Health and Social Care
- Law, Policing and Forensics
- Life Sciences and Education
We want to make postgraduate study accessible to anyone. Our experts can provide support and guidance on everything from choosing the right course to ways of funding your postgraduate studies.
Our flexible options for part-time, full-time, distance learning and blended learning, mean you can study at a time and place that’s convenient for you. Our taught and research-based course programmes cover subjects from Law to Psychology, Engineering to Economics, Environmental Sciences and more.
