We’re extremely proud to have been named as Modern University of the Year and shortlisted for University of the Year (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022). This prestigious award highlights our outstanding facilities, the quality of our teaching and our continuous investment in the student experience.
But don’t just listen to us. Our students also agree with the statistics, voting us top 15 in the UK for lecturers and teaching quality and top 5 in the UK for university halls (WhatUni? Student Choice Awards 2022). Our award-winning teaching facilities, combined with our beautiful green campus provides the perfect home-from-home for your student to grow and succeed.

In 2018 we also received international acclaim winning the Global Teaching Excellence Spotlight Award, recognising our ‘quality of support and engagement infrastructure for students’.
From a TV studio to fully operational theatres, sports therapy and rehab clinics to our clinical skills and simulation centre, we provide our students with the very best realistic working environments. Our outstanding facilities are 2nd in the UK (Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2022).
A truly beautiful campus
Located in the heart of the North West, our stunning campus combines state-of-the-art facilities with beautifully landscaped grounds, historic architecture, two lakes and even a beach. This creates an innovative and inspiring place to learn. It’s no surprise that the campus is recognised as one of the world’s best green spaces (Green Flag Award 2021). See our campus by booking onto an open day or explore from home with our virtual tour.
A focus on creating employable students
Many of our degrees offer accreditation or exemptions towards professional awards. Alongside this, we offer lots of opportunities for students to boost their employability. We are partnered with schools, colleges and businesses to enable students to gain vital experience working on placement in professional environments. This alongside field trips, graduate enterprise, language study, and sandwich year or year abroad options means there are opportunities to suit everyone.
There are extensive opportunities for your student to volunteer, find a part-time job and secure summer work to enhance their CV. Our award-winning careers team can also provide expert assistance and advice in securing graduate employment.
Where every student is supported
Our Student Support ranks in the Top 10 in the UK (Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2022). Whether your student has an accommodation query, needs money advice, wants a confidential one-to-one with a qualified counsellor, or wants to make use of our health and wellbeing service, our comprehensive student support means help and advice will always be available. Dedicated assistance for students with a disability or dyslexia includes support tailored to individual learning requirements and personal needs, as well as the use of assistive technology.
