The University is proud of its fresh and innovative approach to teaching and learning: the atmosphere is relaxed, unstuffy and friendly. The buildings are modern and the University has its own indoor shopping centre in the Kedleston Road campus.

The University believes that learning should be an enjoyable experience, but that it should also help you to develop a successful career, so the learning environment provides you with everything you need to develop your academic skills, whilst the leisure environment gives you every opportunity to relax and enjoy yourself.

  • UNIVERSITY OF WALES TRINITY SAINT DAVID (CARMARTHEN CAMPUS)

Set within the lush, rolling hills of south west Wales, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (Carmarthen campus) offers a different experience for the student: a small ‘family’ university where staff and students develop a close working relationship but where excellence is never compromised. A combination of historic and very modern buildings is typical of this university: deep traditions, but forward-looking; a long history but innovative and modern in its approach. If you are seeking a university where you are treated as a person, not a number; where lifelong friendships can develop in a close-knit community – and where history, innovation and excellence are bound together as one, then Carmarthen is the place for you.

If, however, the city life appeals, then perhaps Swansea campus would suit your needs. This institution is now part of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and offers a comprehensive range of courses to suit all interests.

  • AMITY UNIVERSITY

Amity London is a young organisation partnered with Anglia Ruskin University, offering undergraduate and postgraduate management degrees in the heart of the capital.  Our Bloomsbury site is conveniently located in the city centre and connections with nearby Birkbeck College and the Senate House Library mean that our students study and learn in state-of-the-art University of London facilities. With the increased cost of education, the numbers needing to take paid employment during the course of their studies have never been greater.  At Amity we understand the obstacle that traditional timetabling may place in the path of a successful work-study balance and ensure that contact hours are grouped together to free up as many days as possible, allowing students maximum flexibility in their life outside university.  We also strive to help by maintaining the highest standards for staff, services and facilities, whilst keeping down the cost of study.  We work hard to ensure that our students graduate ready to make their mark on the world without the burden of a large debt.We are pleased to be based in one of the world’s truly global cities.  London is a thriving hub of peoples and cultures and our School reflects this dynamic.  Studying here you will join a global student body with an international outlook that serves to enliven debate and enrich the learning experience.  In an increasingly interconnected world the future belongs to the outward looking and having such exposure on your course is a valuable bonus
