Overview

The University of Hertfordshire is a modern university based largely in Hatfield, in the county of Hertfordshire, about 35km north of London. Described as “the UK’s leading business-facing university”, Hertfordshire has more than 25,000 students enrolled from nearly 90 different countries.

The University of Hertfordshire won the Guardian University Award for Student Experience in 2015, while 95.2% of University students are in work or further study six months after graduating.

The University has many close links with industry, and every British Formula One team has at least one Hertfordshire graduate. Degrees in healthcare science and the pioneering paramedic science BSc make Hertfordshire a preferred provider for the NHS in the east of England and the Universities Careers and Placements Service offers graduates lifelong support on employment and career development.

Services for International Students

The International Student Support Team is fully trained to help with employment, visas, financial and personal matters. Free in-sessional English lessons are available for all international students and are tailored to be relevant to the course of study. Pre-sessional English courses are also available. Before term starts, the University runs a free airport collection service from Heathrow.
