Our international reach means we have over 3,000 undergraduate students, 1000 postgraduate students and over 150 doctoral students studying at our three campus locations in Scotland, the United Arab Emirates and Malaysia. We also have a further 2,000 students worldwide studying a degree with us through one of our Approved Learning Partners.
