UCS Buildings - Nov 2013 (38)



In a world where nothing stays the same, we all need to change, evolve, succeed and change again.

We are a new kind of university, custom built for a changing world. We absorb the best of UK university traditions and align them with a modern world of employment and entrepreneurship.

Learning to love change matters. It means that, whatever happens, you can change your life, right through your life, always achieving more.

See how we plan to deliver an on-campus experience for all from September

You can apply through Clearing if:

You didn't apply to university before 30 June 
You didn't get the grades for your chosen university
You exceeded your grades
You are holding a place at another institution but wish to change to another university
