City centre campus, Oxford
Our city centre campus benefits from a central Oxford location, close to transport links, amenities and the historic city centre. The unique riverside location allows for a wonderful and safe environment to study in, with a variety of excellent facilities at your fingertips including a well-stocked library, hair and beauty salons, café and our fantastic Waterside Restaurant. We are proud to also be home to specialist learning facilities, such as the renowned Rycotewood Furniture Centre which has been dedicated to delivering furniture design and make training since 1938.
Technology campus, Blackbird Leys
Our specialist Technology campus in Blackbird Leys was transformed in 2016, taking advantage of an £8m investment. This high-specification facility supports training in a wide range of technological industries, including construction, engineering, IT, computing and motor vehicle.
The city has a wealth of facilities, including stunning architecture, museums (such as the Ashmolean and the Natural History Museum), bars, cafés and restaurants, and many shopping facilities—from the Westgate Shopping Centre (opened in 2017) to the High Street and Covered Market, featuring many independent retailers.
