Campus was small which was nice sometimes due to always walking past someone you knew which created a family feel. Only really heard mention of the rugby and netball clubs and socials, as well as archery at the very start of the year.. other than that no clubs seemed readily available! Students union was again nice as it was a small family like campus and everyone made each feel welcome and happy so everyone could enjoy their time. Internet was more than often losing connection which was super annoying when watching something or trying to get an assignment fone.done.

Studying at Staffordshire University

Staffordshire University boasts a low cost of living and as being one of the most affordable universities in the country. Staffordshire is also one of the best universities for secondary education training being ranked in the top three with Oxford and Cambridge, with new PGCE courses being recently added. Staffordshire University offers a taste of life near the countryside as well as city life, with campuses in Stafford, Stoke on Trent and Lichfield.

There is an 18:1 staff to student ratio at the University to ensure the best experience for students. The Psychology department has been ranked in the top ten in the country whilst the Molecular Biology and Organismal Biosciences courses have both been awarded ‘Excellent’ from the Quality Assurance Agency. Only four universities have been acknowledged as having high academic quality for Forensic Sciences and Staffordshire University is one of them. The University as a whole has also done consistently well on the National Student Survey.

The Stoke on Trent campus offers a taste of city life, with a vibrant night life, shopping, theatres and plenty of places to eat and drink. The Peak District National Park is also close by to Stoke on Trent for students who want to explore more of the area. The Stafford campus is based in a market town and gives more of the countryside experience to students. There is still plenty to do including visiting art galleries, exploring the history of the area, and stopping off at shops and cafes along the way. Lichfield is close to many canal paths, the National Forest and plenty of pubs along the way. It is a great place for students who enjoy being active with plenty of opportunities to go cycling, walking and running.



The Staffordshire Students Union offers plenty of volunteering experiences for students as well as giving free advice at the Student Advice Centre. Students are encouraged to attend the Students Union Council meetings to have their say and to find out what is happening across the university. At Stoke and Stafford there are plenty of sports clubs and societies on offer from motor sports, to tennis, skiing and scuba diving.

Accommodation can be found close by to all the university campuses including catered and self catered options. Each of the halls of residences has a free car park for any students wanting to bring their car with them. There is also private housing usually inhabited by students after their first year.

An excellent university with an outstanding photography department. Lectures and technicians were always willing to help you if and when it was needed! Constantly checking progress of assessments and genially interested in your wellbeing not just on the course! A very understanding group of people who do not judge or behave negatively around others.. when choosing which university I wanted to attend 3 years ago I decided Staffs sounded the best due to the course, the campus, the area all the boxes were ticked and it did not disappoint!

Staffordshire University has been amazing at supporting me academically with the resources available. I am a recent graduate, 3 years ago when it came down to choosing the right university for me I have chosen Staffs because of the amazing facilities available for the photography course, as well as equipment. I can now say it has not disappointed me. I would truely recommend this university with anyone doing a creative course, especially photography!

It's a lovely campus. As soon as I came here on open day it felt right. The staff I have spoken to have been friendly and helpful. I love the cosplay society. The leaders are awesome and it's nice to hang out with like minded people.

It's ok I guess, not amazing. The computers are minimum, the library pretty bare. The students union seems to do nothing of actual worth other than hold a subpar "club" night in the union bar every Friday and running meaningless #proudToBeStaffs campaigns. At least you get internet everywhere on campus.

I wouldn't pick anywhere else. There's much to be improved but the social aspect outweighs all the bad points! The students union does a great job and making it a place that you love

I expected so much more when I came to university, the range of clubs is limited and the ones that are available do not do many activities. It would be nice if he student union did more events to get students involved and bear what they want. Also the music played in the student club (LRV) is so boring it's unbelievable, they really need to change it up it the same thing each week and it is not universal. WiFi in halls is rubbish!

Great Uni! Lecturers are awesome (on Psychology), Good facility's. New building. Only downside is the area (Stoke is a rough place to live) but all things considered the Uni is amazing

If you were to compare this to other ex-poly's. It's poor, MMU, LJMU, Leeds Met, all fantastic, this is just poor. Been to better Sixth Forms.
