The campus occupies a single site in the heart of the town, so all university buildings are within walking distance, and it’s very easy to explore the town too. Middlesbrough offers an interesting history, access to culture, and striking nearby scenery.

Our students say...

"I opted for Teesside because I wanted to be away from the hustle. I think that when you are making the transition to a new country, a new place, if you arrive in a hustling place, you'd find it more difficult. I wanted to be at a university and a place which is slower moving, to take my own time."
