Famous for its seven-mile stretch of award-winning sandy beaches, Ƶ is quite simply one of the most stunning coastal towns in the country. 

With a population just shy of 200,000 and a thriving hub for a number of industries including the creative, financial and tourism sectors, Ƶ offers the hustle and bustle of a vibrant town combined with a life by the sea.

But it’s not just about the amazing beaches (although we have to admit they are pretty special); the  is on our doorstep and the (which is Ƶ's only UNESCO natural World Heritage site) is just a short drive away. Plus, we are less than two hours from London (with direct trains to Waterloo) and we’ve got an international airport.

It’s not hard to see why many of our students settle in Ƶ after graduating, often launching enterprises of their own.
