Reasons to study with us


Our Openshaw campus, situated close to the Etihad Stadium, was one of our first campuses which has now been redeveloped to ensure you have a great student experience. Many of the refurbishments we've been undertaking have been aimed at making the campus more homely, making it the ideal base for students who want to study with a smaller provider in the more traditional sense of the word! 

Upgrades include a newly improved Library with spaces for quiet study and group study pods as well as access to IT facilities, a brand new coffee shop serving Starbucks coffee, a refectory with hot and cold options and a brand new grab and go bar in the main atrium. 

Students based at Openshaw will also have access to our amazing new sport facility, featuring a six-court multi-discipline sport hall and 30 station gym and full-sized, floodlit 3G full multi-sport pitch.
