Student Recruitment and Admissions

International Office

All our students offer something unique to the University - and as an overseas student you’re no exception. You and your colleagues bring an array of different backgrounds, experiences and ideas that enrich our academic and social life, and add to the exciting cultural diversity of the University and local community. When you come to Staffordshire you will join a thriving community, with students from over 70 different countries, from all corners of the world.

The International Office is the central reference point for international strategy and co-ordinates the University's international activities through four departments:

  • International Student Centre
  • International Partnerships
  • International Recruitment
  • Business Development Team

Student Recruitment

The main role of Student Recruitment is to identify potential students, inform them of the opportunities available at Staffordshire University and provide a range of materials and activities to help them decide if Staffordshire University is the right choice for them.

Student Recruitment comprises: -

  • Admissions
  • Recruitment Liaison Team and Student Advisors

Partnerships Office

The Partnerships Office heads a consortium of the nine Staffordshire further education (FE) colleges, two of the Shropshire FE colleges and Staffordshire University. Its role is to develop a strategic partnership approach to the provision of higher education in FE colleges in this region. It operates as a consortium under the definition established by the Higher Education Funding Council (HEFCE) for England during 1999/2000 for HEFCE funded activity in FE colleges. There are other groupings operating as consortia but not all use the HEFCE definition and criteria. The consortium is managed by a board, comprising the college principals and two senior staff from the University.
