Our students

There are so many places I could access support and they were so friendly.

My experience as a mature student has been really excellent, so many good things happened. I came in with my confidence quite low and didn’t know whether I could cut it academically, it’s been a long time since I’ve done any studying. But that’s when the support really comes in, there are so many places I could access support and they were so friendly. It’s like a family, you’re not a number.

Lecturers have been magical in terms of support and wellbeing.

My last 3 years at Staffordshire university have given me more than I could have asked for. I was given an opportunity to work a years placement during my sandwich degree, I gained major knowledge and experience within my career field and to top it off I was offered my graduate job out of it. My time here with the other students and lecturers have been magical in terms of support and wellbeing.

What makes Staffordshire University stand out is definitely the support from the lecturers.

What makes Staffordshire University stand out is definitely the support from the lecturers, the knowledge that they bring to the modules is incredible, no question is stupid and they’re really supportive. They encourage you to participate and to challenge their thinking and their thought processes as well and if you’re struggling they can help.
