Five great reasons to study with us 1 The skills, the knowledge, the experience

Our courses are shaped by the needs of business and industry, giving you the insight and skills employers are looking for. Many courses also give you the chance to spend time on work placement, putting into practice what you’ve learned and building valuable contacts. It’s a competitive market out there, so we can also help you polish up your CV in other ways, whether it’s through volunteering, studying abroad or getting involved with student politics.

2 Excellent teaching and research

The last National Research Assessment Exercise rated eleven of our research areas as worldleading. It also underpins and influences much of our teaching, which has a reputation for excellence. Safe to say, you’re in good hands.

3 Fantastic facilities

We invest millions to ensure that whether you’re learning in a lab or an editing suite, you’ll be using latest equipment that you can expect to use in industry.

4 Outstanding support

Everyone needs a helping hand now and then, whether it’s money matters, personal problems or finding new accommodation. Our trained advisers are there for you when you need a little help. In fact, in 2009 the QAA said that the support we offered to international students was particularly good. That’s good news for you – and probably good news for your parents, who won’t need to worry quite so much.

5 Location matters

Our campuses have a vibrant community spirit and are modern, self-contained and inspiring places to learn and enjoy student life. You’ll also discover that Hatfield and St Albans have loads to offer, they’re easy to get around and if you’re really stuck for ideas, London’s a short train ride away.

Mini Guide 2013

Hello Hertfordshire! With vibrant towns, lovely countryside, brilliant nights out, top shops and a splash of history, Hertfordshire’s a great place to live, study and generally just enjoy life.

The University is based in a lively, safe modern campus in the town of Hatfield, renowned for its association with the aerospace industry. Whether you’re looking for a night out, something new to wear or fancy a bit of culture, you’ll find plenty to do in and around Hatfield and nearby St Albans to keep you busy in between lectures. Right on your doorstep are pubs, clubs, cafés, takeaways, restaurants, galleries, music venues, museums, shopping centres, leisure centres, a stunning country house or two, and… well, you get the picture. In short, we’ve got it all and in case you can’t find what you want, we know a huge capital city a few miles down the road that probably has.

London calling!

Less than half an hour. That’s all it takes to find yourself in the middle of one of the world’s biggest, most vibrant cities. London. We could easily fill the rest of this guide with everything this thriving metropolis has to offer. So we’ll just say it’s got everything for every possible taste and budget and leave it at that.

Music to your ears

If you love music, Hatfield’s a great location to access club nights and gigs. On campus, the new Forum Hertfordshire has quickly become one of the UK’s top venues (see page 26), while just down the road is Knebworth, host to historic, gigantic concerts featuring the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sonisphere, Oasis, Robbie Williams, and even Led Zeppelin back in the day.

Mini Guide 2013

Home sweet home For lots of people, one of the best things about university is the chance to live independently.

So where will you live? Many First Year students choose halls of residence - they’re conveniently located and they’re a great way to mingle and meet people. But there are other options available and whichever you choose we’ll support you all the way.

All about halls

University-managed homes

The University leases and manages a number of privately owned properties in Hatfield. Flats or houses typically accommodate four students but may be larger or smaller, and we allocate places just as we do for halls. If you go with this option, you’ll be able to move in from 15 September 2013.

Halls of residence are run by the University. They are spread over both campuses, with some offcampus options too. You don’t have to live on the campus where you’re studying, so the choice is all yours. While places in halls are obviously limited, we’re very good at finding rooms for applicants, especially First Year students. To give yourself the best chance of securing a place, apply before the A level results are out and accept your course offer before 31 August.

Private rented properties

College Lane Campus

Some students choose to live with a local family. It’s a good way to make sure you don’t miss out on your home comforts – some even provide meals. If this appeals, we can give you a list of houses available.

This campus has modern, comfortable and well-equipped halls with single study bedrooms, fully fitted kitchens with food lockers and shared bathrooms. There are also plenty of houses and self-contained flats for six to eight students, plus a number of twin rooms. All rooms have University network connections.

de Havilland Campus

This campus offers self-contained flats for around eleven students. The single bedrooms are all en-suite, with fridges and network connections. Shared kitchens are all fitted out with the latest appliances. Accommodation is available at Ridgeview Lodge in nearby London Colney. See go.herts.ac.uk/accommodation for more details.

Another option is to move into a privately owned house or flat with other students. We can give you advice and help with where to look, but as these properties aren’t owned or managed by the University you’ll need to deal directly with your landlord.

Living with a local family

Disabled students

We’ll be sure to provide you with a suitable room if you use a wheelchair or have other particular needs. You may be able to stay there after your First Year too, possibly for the entire time you’re studying with us.

EU and international students

Joining us from overseas? You’re welcome to apply for a room in halls of residence for your First Year. If you’re from the EU, you’ll need to accept your course place by 31 August, while international students have until 6 September.

Mini Guide 2013

How much does student life cost? Being a student is an investment of time and money. Accommodation, textbooks, going out and food all need a bit of budgeting. Fortunately, there’s lots of financial support available.

Mini Guide 2013

For international students

If you’re joining us from overseas, you can find all the information you need about tuition fees at go.herts.ac.uk/international

Loans Course-fee loans

These pay the tuition fees for your chosen course. You don’t need to pay up-front, and these loans are paid directly to the University.

Living-cost loans

These are designed to cover your living expenses. They are paid straight into your bank account in three termly instalments. You can get up to £5,500 if you’re living away from home, or up to £4,375 if you’re living at home. You can apply for both types of loan through Student Finance England at www.direct.gov.uk/en/educationandlearning

Grants

Depending on your household income, you may be eligible for a grant. The maximum available grant is £3,250, which you won’t have to pay back.

Investing in your future

At the University of Hertfordshire we want to make higher education as accessible as possible to as many people as possible, while ensuring we can continue to invest in world-class facilities and academics. Our average fee for UK/EU students, studying a full-time undergraduate degree is £7,500. We have chosen not to charge more than we absolutely have to, offering a realistic and fair deal for our students. For details on individual course fees see the course pages in this guide.

Do I have to pay my fees up-front?

You will not need to pay any course fees up-front, a loan from the Student Loans Company (which you will need to apply for) will cover your fees for your course. This loan is added to any other loans you take to cover living costs. This means that no matter what your financial situation is, course fees will not be a barrier to studying for a degree with us. For more information visit direct.gov.uk/studentfinance

What about part-time study?

If you’re studying part-time you will pay fees per fifteen-credit module that you study, rather than by year. For part-time course fees, please visit the course page website.

NHS and teaching courses

NHS and teaching courses are still government funded, so you won’t need to pay any fees. Up-to-date information is available on go.herts.ac.uk/fees. UK applicants for NHS courses may also be entitled to a means tested NHS bursary, visit www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk

Equivalent or lower qualifications (ELQS)

If you’re interested in studying for a qualification that is equal to, or lower than, a qualification you already hold, your course fee will be £8,500 per year for a full-time course or if you’re studying part-time, it will be £1,065 per fifteen-credit module. However, this does not apply to you if you are receiving the Disabled Student’s Allowance and for Foundation degrees, PGCEs, Primary (BEd) and health related subjects. For more information visit go.herts.ac.uk/ELQ

Repaying your loans

Extra Financial Support

Course fee loans and loans to cover living costs are combined into one loan for repayment after you graduate from university. The facts about repaying your loan and the interest rates applied to your loan are detailed below. • Loans taken out to cover your course fees and living costs only start to be repaid in the April after you graduate if you are earning over £21,000 a year. • If your salary falls below £21,000 your repayments stop – for example if you take a career break or are unemployed. Repayments only start again when you earn over £21,000. • You only repay 9% of what you earn over £21,000. So for example, if your salary was £25,000, you would be earning £4,000 over £21,000 and therefore repay 9% of the £4,000 per year – which is £30 per month. • Loan repayments will be deducted from your salary, normally through the tax system. • If you have not repaid your loan after thirty years it is written off.

Interest

• Interest on your loan will be applied at inflation (RPI – Retail Price Index) plus 3% while you are studying, and up until the April after you leave university or college. • From the April after you leave university or college if you are earning below £21,000, interest will be applied at the rate of inflation. • For graduates earning between £21,000 and £41,000, interest will be applied between RPI and RPI + 3% on a gradual scale depending on income. • For graduates earning above £41,000, interest will be applied at RPI + 3%.

For more information visit go.herts.ac.uk/fees

Scholarships National Scholarship Programme

If you’re a UK student applying for a course costing over £6,000, and fall into one of the qualifying groups, you could be eligible for this scholarship worth a total of £6,000 – we offer 248 each year. For more information visit go.herts.ac.uk/NSP

Diamond Scholarships

These scholarships are worth £3,000 per year for the duration of your course and we award them up to sixty of our students each year who have been identified as gifted, talented or high ability by their school or college, or high achieving students. You’ll need to meet the criteria for this and you need to apply by 12 April 2013. For more information visit go.herts.ac.uk/diamondscholarships

Sports Scholarships

Sporting talent is a real gift and we want to help you realise your potential while you study. Our scholarships all offer different levels of financial and practical support. For more information visit go.herts.ac.uk/scholarships

Supporting students with disabilities

If you have a disability, you may need some extra financial support throughout your studies. If you’re a UK student, you could be entitled to a Disabled Students Allowance – see www.direct.gov.uk/en/disabledpeople or visit go.herts.ac.uk/disability and www.skill.org.uk

Mini Guide 2013

The right connections

We like to say we’re the UK’s leading business-facing university and in fact we were the winners of the Times Higher Education’s Entrepreneurial University of the Year 2010. We have long-standing links with businesses, industry, the public sector and professional organisations, and these feed into our courses, adding to the student experience and successful employment prospects. As well as supplying high calibre graduates, we offer students on year long placements, summer jobs and work experience opportunities to the full range of organisations, from big blue-chips to small and medium-sized enterprises.

Boosting business skills

From Economics to English Literature, every one of our courses is cleverly designed to boost the skills employers are looking for – even if you don’t realise it. Each School of study works closely with experienced business people to plan its teaching programme. So whatever you’re learning about, you’ll be doing it in a way that makes you an even bigger asset to potential employees.

Placements that add real value

Every year, hundreds of University of Hertfordshire students are on placement with organisations gaining valuable work exprience, giving them a real advantage in the graduate job market.

Wherever you’re heading next, this is the place to start. Our Careers and Placements Service can provide help and advice on everything from gaining work experience, taking a placement year through to undertaking afurther study or securint a graduate job. They're based on both campuses and run a vibrant programme of events including regularly hosting networking opportunites with employers.

Study abroad: opening up a world of possibilities There is a great big world out there and we will help you explore it. Spend part of your course studying or working abroad and you will not only have an amazing time, you will also pick up valuable skills and experience which today’s businesses really value.

Mini Guide 2013

A vibrant international community Take a quick tour of our campuses and you’ll bump into students from Turkey, Nigeria, Singapore, Canada, Germany and China. In fact we have just under 3,000 international students from eighty-five countries which makes for a wonderfully interesting and vibrant community, full of varied opinions, experiences and cultural backgrounds. Everything a contemporary and stimulating university should be. Hertfordshire is an attractive destination for international students: great courses, lots of support and we’re close to London. Before you apply, there are a few things to remember…

Immigration requirements

Firstly you need to know what type of entry clearance or visa you need to study here. Your local British Council or British Mission can help. See www.ukvisas.gov.uk

Local representatives

Most of our students have the opportunity to spend time studying at one of our many partner universities overseas. It is an adventure you'll never forget, boosting your confidence, increasing your independence, introducing you to new people and giving you a fresh perspective on the world.

What will it cost?

Whatever year you study abroad, you pay no fees to the partner university, and if you take a third year placement, you'll pay no tuition fees to us either. Grants and scholarships are also available.

Where can I go?

All sorts of places. We have partnerships with universities in the USA, Canada, Latin America, South Africa, China, Korea and Japan, south-east Asia, and Australia. We are also part of the EU Erasmus programme, which gives you the chance to live, study and work in around twenty European countries.

Do I need to speak the language?

Not necessarily. You can study in English at many of our partner universities in non-English speaking countries, learning the local language alongside as a bonus. Being surrounded by native speakers will help you improve quickly and get even more out of your international experience.

Find out more go.herts.ac.uk/studyabroad or email studyabroad@herts.ac.uk

To assist international students, we’ve set up a network of representatives throughout the world. They’re there to offer advice, information and support, and can also help with your application. To find your nearest representative visit go.herts.ac.uk/countries

Before you get here

Moving to a different country is a big step. So before you set foot on a plane, we’ll give you a detailed guide that will help you plan your journey, how to secure accommodation, what to do before you get here, and what to expect when you do. See go.herts.ac.uk/predep

Help is at hand

Immigration, work permits, financial matters… there’s lots of things to think about. For sound, confidential advice from trained experts, talk to our International Student Support Team. They also organise a social programme for international students, which includes trips to other parts of the UK and Europe.

Get ready to study

We offer a number of courses to help you prepare for academic study:

International Foundation Programme

A full-time course designed to help you improve your English and subject specialist skills before you go on to your degree course. See go.herts.ac.uk/ifp

Mini Guide 2013

The Students' Union (SU) is the beating heart of campus life: parties, nights out, gigs, societies, sports clubs – if there’s any kind of event happening, you can bet the SU has a hand in it somewhere.

Nights out

The SU run club and gig nights at the Forum Hertfordshire. These are a great way to get to know your fellow students – particularly important in those first few weeks – see page 26 for more.

Star-gazing hip-hop skater seeks same

Students’ union – the heart of campus life Join the breakdancing society, go see a live band, meet for drinks after lectures, stand up for your rights...

Sometimes you wish your friends shared your love of astronomy... and rollerskating... and Kanye West… The SU runs scores of clubs and societies for you to meet people who share your passion, whether it’s chess or chocolate, films or faith, motorsport or midwifery. And if there’s no society for your particular interest, why not start your own?

Give a little, gain a lot

Student life doesn’t have to be all studying and partying. The SU has hundreds of ways for you to volunteer your time to help out local charities or work with disadvantaged people. Not only will this give you that positive feeling that you’re contributing to society, but you’ll also be developing vital skills that will shine out from your CV.

One voice

The Students’ Union is a union (the name’s a bit of a giveaway), which means it has a powerful voice, representing all students at every level of the University. You have the chance to stand up for your fellow students and become a rep. You can also get involved in the media side of things, through writing, editing, photography or broadcasting.

Help when you need it

The SU has a wealth of trained officers and staff, capable of lending a friendly ear and offering some very sound advice. Accommodation issues, money matters, things just generally not going your way – all made easier by a cup of tea and someone to help. There’s more on support on page 30.

A forum for fun

The Forum Hertfordshire boasts a spacious auditorium and several bars to suit every mood. There’s also a large, rather tasty restaurant and a cool café with Wi-Fi. You’ll find a bunch of services at the Forum Hertfordshire, such as a nursery, SU jobs shop and more.

Undoubtedly the most popular place on campus is The Forum Hertfordshire. The University’s stunning £38m entertainment venue has only been open a couple of years, but has already earned an impressive reputation for great gigs, classic club nights and stylish socialising.

The Balcony bar overlooking the main Auditorium is perfect for kicking back and people watching, while the funky Style bar is open round the clock for light snacks and smile-inducing cocktails. If you fancy something a bit more down to earth, the EleHouse pub is a bit of an all-round favourite, with hearty pub grub, a games lounge and a friendly atmosphere.

Turn it up!

Ellie Goulding, Florence and the Machine, Example, Tinchy Stryder, Ed Sheeran, will.i.am, Feeder and Professor Green played at the Forum Hertfordshire not too long ago, and no doubt there will be plenty for you to see during your time too. Most nights have something to offer, and alongside big-time club nights in the Auditorium, the Forum Hertfordshire Attic offers a more intimate atmosphere, as well as DJ sets and comedy nights.

Mini Guide 2013

See you on campus This is where it all happens. Imagine a vibrant, fast-paced environment, a diverse community of students and academics, fantastic new facilities and plenty of inspiring spaces to meet, relax and study.

Mini Guide 2013

Investing in your future

We’re really proud of our Hatfield campuses, and we think you’ll be seriously impressed too. We’ve poured some big investments into the buildings and facilities to make sure we offer the best possible environment to study in. Both sites feel fresh and new, with a real sense of energy.

The College Lane Campus

Most of the University’s Schools of study are based at College Lane, and you’ll soon get to know it really well. It’s a big, self-contained campus, with lots of modern buildings and some seriously impressive facilities. It’s surrounded by specialist teaching facilities, Learning Resources Centres, student accommodation, a medical centre and pharmacy and our amazing new Students’ Union complex, The Forum Hertfordshire.

The de Havilland Campus

Our £120m de Havilland campus is home to the Schools of Humanities, Education, Law and Business. This pioneering development combines new halls of residence, purpose-built academic buildings, a twenty-four hour Learning Resources Centre, great sports facilities and a 460-seat auditorium. When it’s time to take a break, the cinema and shopping centre are just a short walk away.

The School of Law

The School of Law has recently relocated from St Albans to a new £10m building on the de Havilland Campus. The facilities there are nothing short of spectacular – modern, flexible teaching spaces, a mediation centre, a practising Law Clinic and a full-scale mock courtroom. We guarantee you’ll be amazed.

Catch the bus

The quickest, cheapest and most convenient way to get around is with Uno, our very own bus service. Uno shuttle buses link both campuses and travel between Hatfield and St Albans until midnight, right through term-time. Along with the region’s public buses, Uno also runs to Hatfield station and town centre, across the region and into North London.

UH Galleries

Our UH Galleries team organises the most dynamic programme of contemporary art, craft and design exhibitions in Hertfordshire. On the College Lane Campus you’ll find our highly acclaimed Art and Design Gallery and we have our own intimate gallery space within the nearby Museum of St Albans. Both showcase new and renowned artists and have an inspiring programme of events and exhibitions.

Mini Guide 2013

Love learning, your way Whichever course you choose, you’ll need to do some work outside lectures and seminars (don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of free time too).

Mini Guide 2013

We know that everyone likes to study in a different way and at different times, so our learning resources are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. So whether you’re a night owl or an early bird, you can access information and use them day or night. Getting together or going it alone

Studying isn’t just about poring over books in a silent room. University is a melting pot of passionate arguments and boundary-pushing ideas; it’s about getting together to solve a problem, practise a presentation or debate ideas. Sometimes you’ll want a little quiet time to study alone. That’s why we have 3000 workspaces available – with everything from quiet booths to group work spaces.

Fantastic facilities and cutting-edge technology

You’ll probably be asked to present your work in a variety of ways, and our brilliant equipment and facilities mean you can have some fun at the same time. There’s everything from high-tech science labs to video studios and editing suites; in fact we’re always investing in new technology that reflects what you can expect to use in your chosen profession. You’ll also find university computers and Wi Fi access throughout so you can tap into the internet, use software or find a wide range of online journals and other resources. Don’t forget there’s plenty of support to help you get on, such as learning resources clinics and assistive technology for those with a disability.

Stay connected with StudyNet

What is it? It’s our cutting-edge online learning environment – which basically means it’s where you can find course resources, lecture notes, research materials, blogs, podcasts, academic advice and more. Plus you can access it from absolutely anywhere. It’s particularly helpful if you’re balancing studies with a job or family, as you can log on whenever it suits you. You can also join in online discussions, helping you stay in touch with other students, as well as lecturers and tutors.

(ii) The University will use all reasonable endeavours to deliver courses in accordance with the descriptions set out in this prospectus. However, the University does not provide education to UK students on a commercial basis. It is also very largely dependent upon charitable and public funds, which the University has to manage in a way which is efficient and cost-effective, in the context of the provision of a diverse range of courses to a large number of students. The University, therefore: (a) reserves the right to make variations to the contents or methods of delivery of courses, to discontinue courses and to merge or combine courses if such action is reasonably considered to be necessary by the University (see statement below: ‘Changes to Schemes of Study’). If the University discontinues any course it will use its reasonable endeavours to provide a suitable alternative course. (b) cannot accept responsibility and expressly excludes liability for damage to students’ personal property, for transfer of computer viruses to students’ equipment and for the consequences of any breach of contract by individual students. (c) cannot accept any liability for any circumstances beyond its reasonable control including, without limitation, any strike, lock-out or other industrial action. Changes to schemes of study The information given in this prospectus is believed correct at the time of going to press, but the University reserves the right, at its discretion, at any time and for any reason, to make changes to the services offered by the University and set out in this prospectus without prior notice including, but not limited to, the following: • Not to offer a scheme of study which fails to recruit the minimum number required by regulation; or • To make changes to syllabuses and courses for reasons including meeting technological or academic developments or employers’ requirements particularly in specialist options in the Final Year; or • Not to offer options, specialisms or elective courses within a scheme of study, where there is insufficient student demand. Provision of services and campus locations The campus locations and faculty structures for different study areas given throughout this prospectus are believed correct at the time of going to press. However, during a period of expansion and change or for administrative reasons, it may be necessary to review policies or in a small minority of cases relocate particular activities; students affected by any such change will be notified by the University as soon as is possible in advance. You are advised to contact the University if you need clarification of particular issues. Contractual liability The information published in this prospectus outlines the intended academic provisions for the 2012/13 academic year, and provides other information on facilities that may be offered by the University as well as background information about the local area and the social and other opportunities it offers. The University reserves the right to change without notice any information about its provisions contained in this prospectus including (but without limitation) fees, or any rule or regulation pertaining to the standards for admission to, the requirements for the continuation of study in, and the requirements for the granting of degrees or diplomas in, any or all of its programmes of study. The publication of information in this prospectus does not bind the University to the provision of programmes of study or course modules, or other facilities as listed herein. The University will not be liable for any interruption in, or cancellation of, any academic activities as set forth in this prospectus and related information where such interruption is caused by weather, fire, industrial action, lock-out, inability to procure materials or trades, restrictive laws or governmental regulations, actions taken by staff or students of the University or by others, civil unrest or disobedience, public health emergencies, or any other cause of any kind beyond the reasonable control of the University. Although every reasonable effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this prospectus was accurate at the time of publication (February 2012), the University of Hertfordshire does not warrant or represent its accuracy and disclaims any liability to any person anywhere in the world (except for death or personal injury arising from the negligence of the University of Hertfordshire) for any liability whether in contract, tort, negligence, breach of statutory duty or otherwise for any, economic loss, (whether direct or indirect) damages, costs or expenses suffered as a result of the use or reliance upon the information contained in this document to the maximum extent permitted by law. This disclaimer shall be interpreted in accordance with English law. In the event of a discrepancy between a print version and information provided on the University’s web site, the web version will apply.
