Despite being one of the largest campuses in the UK, it is one of the smallest universities in terms of student numbers, with a genuine, friendly student and staff community. The campus is self-contained with student and staff residencies, all teaching buildings, the library, restaurants, Students’ Union, shops, a bank and a health centre, which is staffed by both male and female doctors, on site.
The campus community is especially diverse with students and staff from the UK and over 160 countries worldwide.
