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.

Accommodation

On-campus accommodation is guaranteed for all first year students at University of Hertfordshire. Halls of residence including flats, houses and traditional corridor halls are available on both the College Lane and the de Havilland campuses and students can choose to live at either, regardless of the campus at which they are studying.

Off-campus accommodation is available from the University at Ridgeview Lodge, a short drive away. There are numerous private rented properties in the area, as well as the option to live with a local family as a lodger.

Location

The University of Hertfordshire is located just 25 minutes by train from London in beautiful countryside north of the capital. The University of Hertfordshire’s two campuses in Hatfield are only ten minutes walk apart, connected by a network of pathways, cycle routes and shuttle buses. Hatfield is a town of almost 30,000 people in the county of Hertfordshire. It features several pubs and The Forum, a popular entertainment venue with students. The town centre is small but features a regular market and a farmers’ market each month.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
