Bigger is better

In 2017-18 we recruited a total of 34,329 students, more than ever before. Each year we’ve increased our student numbers, adding to the bustling vibrant academic community on our campuses. We’ve matched our increase in students with more staff and increased investment in facilities, so the benefit is tremendous for everyone.

International in every way

We pride ourselves on being a global university, and we recruit students from all over the world as a result. Fully a quarter of our students are international students, and we actually have more international postgraduates than those from the UK. The result? An international, multicultural and global university, with a huge variety of cultures, foods, languages and backgrounds contributing to an amazing experience for everyone. There’s no better way to be ready for the global world that awaits you.
