We are continually renewing and upgrading our facilities so please do ask about the resources specific to your course.

Class sizes vary but are generally much smaller than traditional universities. Typically you will be in a group of 15-25 students and have opportunities to work and/or socialise with students on related courses.

Teachers know all their students’ names and we pride ourselves on treating all students as individuals.
