About Staffordshire University
Established in 1992, Staffordshire University is located on two main campuses in the towns of Stoke-on-Trent and Stafford, as well as four smaller campuses, 250km north of London.
It currently has around 12,000 students enrolled. Originally a technical college for pottery, the university remains strong in science and engineering subjects. Staffordshire University is a pioneer in two year ‘fast track’ degrees in subjects such as business, law and computer science, as well as standard foundation degrees.
The campuses have seen significant investment in recent years, including a £30 million science block on the Stoke campus.
The Stafford campus’ Octagon Centre is one of the largest university computing facilities in Europe, and the campus also hosts the university’s reputable nursing and midwifery courses as well as teacher training, which was ranked fourth in the country in 2012.
The International Student Centre is part of Staffordshire University's Student Office and provides a range of support for international students including English language teaching, academic and cultural support as well as specialist immigration advice. The centre is staffed with a team of experienced English language teachers and two international student advisers.
At the beginning of the year there is an International Welcome Programme run for international students to get to know each other, Staffordshire and the university..
