Staffordshire University was founded in 1992 and has over 12,000 students enrolled on two campuses in the towns of Stoke-on-Trent and Stafford. The university provides a variety of two-year ‘fast track' degrees in business, law, and computer science.
The university focuses on employability and has ties with prominent global corporations like Microsoft and Cisco, as well as industry links with Amazon and Google. Stoke-on- Trent is a culturally significant city in the United Kingdom, with a rich industrial background and a unique artistic flare. We are located about an hour's drive between Liverpool and Manchester.
Staffordshire University is a true pioneering institution. They created the UK's first ever Esports degree in 2017, which has received hundreds of applications from around the world. This unique degree focuses on the business side of Esports and builds on our reputation as a premier college for Computer Games, thanks to support from The National University eSports League, Fast Web Media, and Codemasters. Our technologically inspired courses will lead to a variety of fresh and previously unknown professional prospects.
The Overseas Student Centre, which is part of Staffordshire University's Student Office, offers a variety of services to international students, such as English language instruction, academic and cultural support, and immigration guidance. A team of skilled English language teachers and two international student counsellors work at the centre. An International Welcome Program is held at the beginning of the year for students to get to know one another, Staffordshire, and the University.
Both campuses have different types of housing. Stafford offers 605 rooms, while Stoke has slightly over 1,000 rooms available in student residences or more typical halls of residence. On the Stoke campus, postgraduate students have their own hall of residence, and the University also runs a search engine for landlords to assist students who choose to live in the private sector.
Staffordshire University is divided into two main campuses, one in Stoke-on-Trent and the other in Stafford, as well as four smaller study locations. Stafford lies in south Staffordshire, about one hour from Birmingham, while Stoke-on-Trent is in north Staffordshire, 45 minutes by rail from Manchester.
Stoke-on-Trent is a flourishing modern city with a long industrial history, with a population of over 250,000 people. Stoke and Stafford are 27 kilometres apart in the heart of England's countryside. Because of its long history of ceramic design and production, the region is known as "The Potteries."
