The University is the UK's leading business-facing university and an exemplar in the sector. It is innovative and enterprising and challenges individuals and organisations to excel.

Careers, employability and partnerships

Our courses are informed by our relationships with business and industry. They are therefore shaped to give you the transferable skills to enable you to make an effective and lifelong contribution to your chosen field. More than 95% of our graduates are in employment or further study six months after graduating.

Work placements and study abroad

Many of our courses offer the opportunity for a work placement or to study abroad. These are opportunities to put into practice what you are learning, to build valuable contacts, and to broaden your skills. And it makes a great impression on future employers!

Excellent teaching and research

The University's teaching has a reputation for excellence, and is underpinned by research of the highest quality. We achieved a silver award in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework in recognition of outstanding outcomes for our students from all backgrounds and more than 55% of our research has been rated "world leading" and "internationally excellent" in the Government's 2014 Research Excellence Framework.

Improving your campus

We've invested heavily in our campuses so that we can offer you the best possible environment to study. The £120m de Havilland campus boasts fully equipped accommodation and purpose-built academic buildings. The £10m Law Building offers spectacular facilities, including a full-scale mock courtroom. But that's not all: we have investment plans underway of more than £165m.

Location matters

Our campuses have a vibrant community spirit and are modern, self-contained and inspiring places to learn. When you need a break from studying, the cinema and shopping centre are a short walk away. Nearby Hatfield and St Albans have loads to offer, and London is less than half an hour away.
