Cutting-edge tech through digital facilities
Connections put a man on the moon and planes in the sky. Yet without
state-of-the-art technology, none of this would have been possible. If you study in the dedicated £30 million Science Centre, you’ll get your hands on three floors of technology that are at the forefront of scientific research and development. A short walk from the Science Centre is the Crime Scene House. This is a real house used to replicate crime scenes, giving students practical experience in investigation and putting forensic theories to the test in a real-world environment.

Over the past decade, Staffordshire University has invested over £140 million in developing the campus into a vibrant and dynamic teaching and learning facility with convenient public transport links and incredible social areas.
