Your learning matters to us at the University of Bedfordshire. Our courses are designed to integrate the latest theoretical developments in your chosen subject area with current professional, industry or commercial practices to ensure that you have the knowledge and skills sought by employers or for further study. We continuously review and revise our courses to ensure that they maintain their currency and relevance.
You will be taught in a modern learning environment by qualified staff whose expertise is a blend of research, scholarship and professional practice at the forefront of their subject. Many of our staff are recognised by the national Higher Education Academy, for the quality and effectiveness of their teaching. Your learning will be supported by online materials and activities through BREO (Bedfordshire Resources for Education Online). BREO includes a number of tools available to staff and students for sharing, creating and developing learning including a virtual learning environment (Blackboard) and an e-Portfolio system (Pebble+).
Your learning is the key to your success and at the heart of all that we do. To help your learning skills you will be supported by your academic course team and by Personal Academic Tutors with additional help provided by professional support staff such as the Professional Academic Development (PAD) team, Academic Liaison Librarians and Careers Advisers. In most undergraduate areas we also have Peer Assisted Learning processes in place to enable you to learn from students in the years ahead of you - a process many first year students find enormously helpful.
