When you study with us, you are joining a community that’s committed to changing things for the better.

From the friends you make to the inspirational lecturers and tutors who spark your interest, it’s an experience you’ll never forget. We know what it takes to help you develop the right skills to make a real difference.

And become the best nurse, teacher, data analyst, social worker, environmental scientist – or whichever role fires your imagination – that you can be. Our facilities are some of the best in the world and will allow you to learn in real-world scenarios. You can learn on our global digital farm, in our simulation ambulance and hospital wards, fully functioning newsroom and radio station, or at our ecologically significant wetlands.

Plus, we’re in the top 2 per cent of universities worldwide for climate action (Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2022). And because we’ve integrated sustainability into our undergraduate courses, you’ll make real and lasting changes – whichever degree you choose.
