lecture theatre

Enjoy lectures in GREAT comfort

Lectures are synonymous with further and Higher Education – and our modern 100-seat theatre provides space for students to come together and be inspired. The intimate setting allows each student to become fully-immersed in lectures and presentations; and with small class sizes too, you won’t just become a face in the crowd.

IT facilities

Take GREAT pride in assignments

IT skills are essential for both education and in the workplace. The university centre is a Microsoft centre of excellence so you know you’re in good hands. Our computer suites contain the latest software and technology to ensure you excel in your assignments.

Social space

Make GREAT friends

High-level study demands high-quality facilities, and our social and meeting spaces are no exception. The university centre has plenty of space for students to relax between studies and meet new friends. The chairs aren’t only comfortable, but functional too – containing USB ports, which means you can stay, surf, study and socialise in-between lessons.

Seminar room

GREAT space for ideas

Our seminar rooms are fully kitted out to ensure each lesson runs smoothly. Seminars allow students to share ideas and motivation. There’s plenty of space for group discussions, as well as space to work on individual projects related to your course.

sports facilities

Enjoy the GREAT outdoors

The university centre has the added bonus of a multi-use outdoor games area, which includes a 3G pitch for football. The facilities are ideal for those studying sports-related qualifications, or for students who just wish to remain active while studying with us.
