Want to see our campuses in real life?

Due to restrictions in the UK, we are unable to show visitors around our campuses and accommodation in person right now, but that doesn't mean you can't have a sneak-peak virtually! We have both virtual tours and campus videos which you can check out. Just scroll down the page and you'll find them in the section about our campuses. 

However, we are hoping to be able to welcome visitors onto our beautiful campus for outdoor tours in the near future. Our website will be updated with information on this soon.

Check out our subject videos

In February, we hosted a week-long event which included talks from each of our academic departments about their degree courses. All the content was recorded from our Postgraduate Virtual Week, which is available to you on-demand.
