UCAS Code: G53

Entry Requirements

  • The admissions team will support students through the application process every step of the way.
  • All applications are judged on individual merit taking into account both qualifications and experience in order to make a decision.
  • Many of the university’s degrees are available with an integrated foundation year providing an additional access point for students who don’t quite meet the requirements for the more traditional 3 year route.

Teaching Methods

  • Work-related learning is at the heart of courses, providing opportunities for students to learn by working with industry, employers and professional clients, learning via placements, work experience, responding to live briefs and developing their own enterprise projects.
  • We focus on delivering research programmes with real-world impacts, from projects working with local businesses to develop and enhance practices, to global astronomical projects.
  • The importance of problem-solving is emphasised through the latest cutting-edge ideas and technical knowledge.
  • When students enroll they are allocated a personal tutor who provides advice, pastoral and academic support throughout their studies.

Course Flexibility

  • Programmes are modular, allowing students to study topics from other subject areas of interest; full- and part-time study routes are available across the majority of courses.
  • Students can choose to study a second language, or learn skills and gain experience with the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL).
  • Two-Year Fast-Track degrees with all the content of traditional 3-year routes, but condensed over 3 10-week semesters; available exclusively as part of the courses offered by the North Wales Business School at Wrexham Glyndwr University.
  • Four-year Integrated Masters. Selecting this option gives students eligibility for student loan funding towards fees and living costs for the full 4 years of the course, whereas a standalone masters at the end of a course won’t be eligible for this funding. Integrated Masters degrees are currently available in Art and Design, Business and Computing.
  • Work-related learning. Many courses include opportunities to gain hands-on experience both on-campus, through exhibitions, competitions and performances, or through external work placement opportunities.

Availability of Part-Time Work

  • The university’s online job service is a handy way of helping students find part-time, temporary and graduate vacancies, as well as work experience and volunteering opportunities.
  • The university also offers temporary and casual vacancies such as opportunities to become a student ambassador.
