As a twenty-first century, business-facing university, we're committed to giving our students the skills they need to succeed in the global marketplace.
They leave the University of Hertfordshire confident, experienced and highly employable.
We achieve this by:
One of our aims is to bring higher education to a wider audience. We provide flexible learning opportunities for local residents and businesses, including:
Gwillym Morris, an expert in visual effects and computer animation who has worked on films like Lord of the Rings and King Kong, is one of our part-time lecturers and a guest speaker.
Our special effects students work on live projects for real clients. They’ve worked on Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Batman Begins and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
One of our students is working in partnership with Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, on a wind turbine control system.
Another is working with Nokia to increase road safety for motorcyclists by installing a second brake light on the motorcycle helmet.
Our Business School has piloted an innovative project, the Business Marketing @ UH award, in which local SMEs get together with academics and students to develop specific strategic marketing plans.
More than 20 companies have benefited from the project, including:
