Benefits of studying with us

We offer our students the most comprehensive student support package in the UK. We want you to concentrate on achieving your full potential and making the most of your time at university. That’s why we offer our students the following benefits included within your tuition fee.

Your own HP laptop* or discount on accommodation

As a full-time BA, BSc, BEng, LLB, HND, FdA or FdSc student starting the first year of your degree with us in September 2018 or 2019, you'll receive a HP laptop* to keep at no additional cost, so you can study how and when you like. Alternatively, instead of a laptop, you can opt for a discount on accommodation costs (if you stay in our Halls of Residence) or credit to spend on campus.

Microsoft Office and Windows 10

Every student receives a subscription to Microsoft Office 2016 for the duration of their studies. This includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other programmes, so that you'll have everything you need to get the most from your course. Our students also have the option to upgrade their computers to Windows 10.

All inclusive sports and societies

We're one of only a handful of universities in the UK to guarantee access to sports and societies by making them free! This means you get the most out of university outside of lectures as well as in them. There's no cost to join any of our clubs and teams via the Students' Union, this includes no costs for any kit. Why not give something new a try!

Cost-effective learning

All of the core reading for your course is provided by our library, so you don’t have to go out and buy all of your books - just check them out when you need them. You’ll also have access to our award-winning Skills Hub and virtual learning environment, which will provide you with tools to develop your academic skills and access course materials.
