The University holds the prestigious Gold Teaching Excellence Framework award which showcases our quality of teaching and commitment to the overall student experience of both our domestic and overseas students.

Hertfordshire has really invested in our facilities over the past 10 years, to give students the most practical learning experience. Notably, there is a new 4 storey £50 million Science Building which includes a state-of-the-art simulation hospital ward and pharmacy helping to prepare the Healthcare and Pharmacy students for work by giving them practical experience. Hertfordshire is also home to one of the UK’s only replica Crown Courts which means the Law students can practice in a realistic court environment before they qualify.
