Our newest and fastest growing campus – Hastings is home to over 800 students, studying subjects including digital and broadcast media, education, graphic design and illustration, journalism, English literature, public health, nursing, biology, business, computing, mathematics and social science.
Placements and employability skills are built in to every course, with some courses offering year long paid opportunities. Leading industry and professional figures contribute to course development, teaching and regularly visit campus to deliver seminars. Recent placement partners include the BBC, Bank of America, The National Trust and the NHS.
Graduates from our Hastings courses have gone on to careers with multinational companies including Sky, Xerox, BT, and businesses such as Saga and Hastings Direct. Others choose to work to better their communities, through careers in nursing and education or by joining the police force, government and in voluntary sectors. We also help graduates to start up their own businesses through our entrepreneurial network BeePurple.
The real-world, professional focus of our courses is reflected in the wealth of specialist learning facilities we provide in Hastings, from state-of-the-art laboratories to TV studios and games suites. They are designed to build skills and experience and replicate industry environments. We have invested over £15 million into facilities and buildings since 2012.
Our campus is situated in the heart of Hastings town centre – just two minutes from the mainline train station and five minutes from the shopping district and beach.
