About Burton and South Derbyshire College

Address and Location

Staffordshire University is split across two of Stoke-on-Trent's six towns, Stafford and Stoke. The institution also runs two co-funded centres in Lichfield and Shrewsbury.  

Background and History

Staffordshire University has gone through a series of evolutions since its foundation in 1992. Renowned for its commitment to student development, course variety and high-quality teaching, the university is currently undergoing a £282 million campus-transformation project.

Exit the motorway at Junction 15 and follow the A500 towards Stoke. From the A500, turn onto the A5006 or A52 and then take Station Road. At the roundabout, turn onto College Road and head towards the university.

By Rail: Stoke-on-Trent Station is serviced by routes from all major cities.

Accessibility: Staffordshire advises students with specific needs to note them on their UCAS application. This allows the university's Disability Support to organise any necessary support services.

Both the Stoke and Stafford campuses have sports facilities open to students, staff and the local community. Each campus is home to an array of cafes and restaurants.  

Medical and Social Care

Staffordshire has a Student Information Centre at its Stafford and Stoke campuses, providing students with the advice they need to get the most out of university life. A multi-faith chaplaincy offers guidance to staff and students of all backgrounds. The university provides NHS services at two Student Health Centres, while the Student Enabling Centres offers counselling by specialist student advisors.  

What's on in the Area

Southwest of the Peak District and fondly known as The Potteries', Stoke-on-Trent is one of the most picturesque regions in the Midlands. Alton Towers is close enough for a day trip, as are Manchester and Birmingham.

Moving On

Staffordshire's Careers Centre offers free, impartial advice to all students of the university. The experienced team works closely with industry partners to foster opportunities for graduate employment. The centre also advertises job opportunities through its JobZone online service.

Did you know?

The low cost of living in Stoke and Stafford makes Staffordshire one of the most affordable universities in the UK. Honorary graduates of the university include polar explorer Ann Daniels, BBC journalist Alan Johnston and 1966 World Cup hero Gordon Banks. Meanwhile, the town's most famous sons are Robbie Williams and Lemmy from Motorhead.

Is Staffordshire University the place for you?

Flexible study options and weekends spent in the Peak District make Staffordshire an attractive choice for new undergraduates. If art galleries and cosmopolitan living are what you seek from student life, then more suitable options exist elsewhere (try Nottingham Trent, for starters). Staffordshire shines on its own merits, nonetheless.
