Staffordshire University Academy is proud to be associated with Staffordshire University.
Our sponsor has a long and proud history of providing high quality, progressive and inclusive Higher Education for people from across Staffordshire, the region, the UK and the rest of the world. They are a Connected University, connected to the needs of their students, to business and to society. As a university they believe that education has the power to transform society, that we should play a role in enabling people to exceed their own expectations and that we should have a positive impact on our local and regional communities; SUA shares this view.
The university is passionate about transforming the lives and aspirations of the individuals and communities it serves. With over 20,000 students and an annual turnover in excess of £120m, Staffordshire University leads the sector on access, partnerships and flexible provision. In addition to campuses in Stoke-on-Trent, Stafford, Lichfield and Shrewsbury, the University has a significant international presence and has opened a Digital Institute campus in London.
Building upon their expertise and excellence in educational practice, research and consultancy, the university is a major provider of educational opportunities for children, young adults and mature learners.
The university has strong links to Staffordshire University Academy. SUA provides placements for students from their Education Department and sports science students are regularly placed at SUA, where they work as coaches for our numerous sports teams. Staffordshire University is a popular destination for students who leave our successful and growing Sixth Form.
Staffordshire University is also going to be involved in helping to develop the courses that will be offered at SUA next year, linked to our exciting association with Hednesford Town Juniors and Youth. The university has an international reputation for many of its courses and this includes being able to study for degrees in Sport and Exercise Science, Sports Coaching, Sports Therapy, Football Coaching and Performance, Physical Education and Youth Sports Coaching and Sports and Exercise Psychology. With extensive, industry-grade facilities to hand, expert academic staff, and active business links with the likes of Stoke City FC and Michael Jordan Performance the university is well placed to assist our students with their studies.
