You will experience innovative student-led approaches to learning delivered by professionals and academics who ALL have experience in industry. We understand the real world.

Every undergraduate student will work with an employer to gain practical real world work experience. We see this as critical for you to understand the relationship of theory in to practice.

All courses are designed to instill in graduates the attributes desired by employers, e.g. innovation, creativity, an enterprising mindset and responsiveness to unexpected events or tasks.

We offer extensive support to those who need it and ‘stretch’ activities for those who want to be challenged further.

Whichever course you decide to choose, be safe in the knowledge that all our courses are regularly reviewed in consultation with employers to ensure currency of curriculum and to maximise graduate employability.

We also provide opportunities to study Business and Management in the medium of Welsh.
