We believe passionately that higher education should be open to everyone who has the ability and potential to benefit from it, regardless of age, ethnicity, disability or family background.

We believe our University is enriched by having students and staff from a wide variety of backgrounds. We know from our experience that a diverse student group creates a lively and successful community, so here’s a bit about the community you will be joining.
