Choose a mindset

We empower our students to make a choice. To choose a university that pushes itself as much as it pushes you. 

We champion curiosity and encourage you to question everything. We inspire you to push every button and break every mould. We want you to challenge the way things are done. To stop and think. Because when you stop and think, great things happen.

Ultimately, we want you to be the best you can be. This is your university experience and no one else’s.

Choose to do university right. 


What is an undergraduate degree?

An undergraduate degree is the foundation for your future. It’s a thorough grounding in your chosen subject. You're an undergraduate student if you are studying for your first degree – usually a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc).

Many students opt for a full-time three year course – but it’s also possible to balance study and life, learning part-time. Another option is to build practical skills and proven experience on a paid placement year. It’s a great way to really test your new skills and knowledge, and you’ll make valuable workplace connections, too.

"I feel that my degree gave me a kick-off start to my career and my personal development. A lot of that was a result of lecturers encouraging students to make their own decisions with careful guidance from the university environment."
