Founded in 1914, and famous for its forward-thinking approach, Staffordshire University has become a figurehead for its vocational and academic teaching, innovative grasp of industry, and student employability.

Although our campus continues to expand to create dynamic opportunities, we are proud of our heritage in the great city of Stoke-on-Trent. 


Our university is divided into six academic departments, known as schools:

  • Computing and Digital Technologies 
  • Creative Arts and Engineering
  • Health and Social Care
  • Law, Policing and Forensics
  • Life Sciences and Education
  • Staffordshire Business School
  • Digital Institute London - In addition to the six schools, Digital Institute London - part of Staffordshire University - is devoted to training the technological pioneers of the future.


We have a thriving research environment, with areas of established internationally recognised expertise. Our research tackles issues that support the needs of international partners, national governments, and regional and local organisations.

We provide leading research and expertise in the following areas:

  • Centre of Archaeology
  • Staffordshire Centre for Psychological Research
  • Centre for Biomechanics and Rehabilitation Technologies (CBRT)
  • The Centre for Health and Development (CHAD)


Graduates who've secured relevant work experience alongside their study are more likely to get the job they want.  That’s why we guarantee the opportunity of work experience for all on-campus, full time undergraduate students. 

Work experience may be closely linked to your course, or you could choose a broader experience outside of your studies to develop your employability skills. 

Our commitment aims to give students the best possible mix of knowledge and experience, so that by the time you graduate, you're already standing out from the crowd.
