Benefits of being a part-time student

Free Fitness Suite

Any student can access the gym based in Victoria Hall where you can use a fantastic range of equipment to get fit. You will need to undergo an induction to ensure you know how to use equipment safely and then, whether you want to build muscle or tone up, you are good to go!

UNESCO World Heritage Site

We are very fortunate to be situated within the beautiful village of Saltaire, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The village holds many annual events such as the World Heritage Weekend, Saltaire Festival, the Saltaire Arts Trail, Bradford Dragon Boat Festival and was also part of the Tour de Yorkshire 2017 route which saw the cyclists pass through the village. The local community came down to cheer them on and take part in activities outside Victoria Hall and in Roberts Park.
