Overview

Staffordshire University is located across two campuses in the towns of Stoke-on-Trent and Stafford and was established in 1992, with around 12,000 students currently enrolled. The University offers a wide variety of two-year ‘fast track’ degrees in subjects such as Business, Law and Computer Science.

Both Staffordshire University campuses have seen significant investment in recent years, including a £30 million science block at the Stoke campus. The Stafford campus’ Octagon Centre is one of the largest university computing facilities in Europe, and the facility also hosts the University’s reputable nursing and midwifery courses as well as teacher training, which was ranked fourth in the UK in 2012.

Services for International Students

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 students to get to know each other, Staffordshire and the University.

Location

Staffordshire University has two main campuses in Stoke-on-Trent and Stafford, along with four smaller areas of study. The city of Stoke-on-Trent is in north Staffordshire, 45 minutes from Manchester by train; while the town of Stafford is in south Staffordshire, about one hour from Birmingham.

Stoke and Stafford are 27km apart in the centre of the UK and Stoke-on-Trent, which now has a population of over 250,000 people, is a vibrant modern city renowned for its industrial heritage. The local area is often referred to as 'The Potteries' because of its long history of ceramic design and manufacture.
