Who we are

Since 1914 we have offered vocationally inspired education relevant for the age. Back then our focus was on mining and ceramics. But times have changed and we have too. Now we’re delivering everything from Computer Games Design to Forensic Science.

We're all about independent thinking, and growing people who think and act for themselves. We learn for the future, but we live in the here and now. We know that you'll leave Staffs with a great qualification, but what's more important to us is that you'll have a great time doing so.

Firmly believing that high quality learning environments, purpose-designed to reflect the real world of work, provide you with the best possible introduction to your chosen career, Staffordshire University offers a whole range of world-class facilities.

Combined with outstanding teaching and enviable placement opportunities, you become highly employable and equipped with all the practical experience and life skills necessary to succeed.
