University qualifications are valued by employers and we work with many different industries to ensure that our programmes have that vocational edge and include the skills and knowledge you will require to progress in the real world.
Our qualifications are work related, aimed at those who prefer to take a vocational route and build up skills to develop their careers and succeed in the competitive jobs market.
Many of our students undertake live projects for local and national employers, enter national and international competitions and complete work placements during their course.
We believe that employability is a central focus within all of our higher education programmes and we put the achievement and success of our students at the heart of everything we do. We aim to give each and every one of our undergraduates the best possible chance of joining, and sustaining, their chosen career path. This applies equally to full time students, and to those on part time study routes who are already combining work and study.
Every one of our new and existing programmes is designed by a team of academic specialists from the University Centre and our Partner Universities, working closely alongside experts from within the profession or industry concerned. That way, undergraduates can be sure that the course is academically strong, and meets the needs of employers.
Don't take our word for it, read what employers say about working with us.
We develop a range of employer led projects and opportunities as well as supporting work-based learning or placements for all of our undergraduates. During the academic year, the course team are constantly working in the background to keep employability at the centre of student learning. Read about our work-based learning models.
