Important notice

The University has been reviewing its campus at Crewe and considering whether or not to continue to offer the suite of courses currently on offer. Several options for the future of the campus have been under consideration.

One of the options was to withdraw from the campus – meaning the University would cease to operate from the campus in Crewe from Summer 2019 onwards – and, after full and careful consideration, the University is now pursuing this recommended option.

Further consultation needs to take place, meaning withdrawal from the campus is not yet a final decision. The final decision on the future of the campus will be made in the Spring Term 2017.

We can confirm that we are taking and processing applications for full time postgraduate courses and any part time courses of two years in duration starting in 2017 on the Cheshire Campus. However, with regard to longer part time postgraduate courses, due to the ongoing review, the University will accept applications for courses delivered at Cheshire but will not process those applications until more is known in respect of the future of the campus.
