Regular one-on-one contact with a lecturer can really boost your studies. That is why if you decide to start your programme virtually, you will receive the same personal support and contact time as face-to-face students.

Choosing where you live at university is almost as important as choosing where to study. It needs to be a space in which you feel comfortable, safe and happy.

Most students choose to live at Europa Suites. Located just a two-minute walk away from the Europa Point Campus, all rooms have been designed as spaces in which to relax and study. Each self-contained studio apartment features a compact kitchen, en-suite bathroom and large desk.

Europa Point enjoys breath-taking views over the Straits of Gibraltar and the African continent. Beaches and a full sports complex are within walking distance and regular buses connect you to the centre of town.

Location

Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory that is often described as a piece of Britain in the sun. This means you can expect the same standards and values of a British university education within a warm, Mediterranean location that enjoys up to 300 days of sunshine a year.

At 6.7 square kilometres, Gibraltar may be small, but that is what makes it so unique. Everything is walkable, bikeable or a short bus ride away, meaning you will have more time to explore, travel and have fun when you’re not studying. You will be free to join clubs, societies or simply make the most of Gibraltar’s lively leisure and restaurant scene.

If you’re studying in Gibraltar on a student visa, you can take on some part-time work. Depending on your visa, you should be able to work up to 20 hours per week during term time and 40hrs per week during vacation. On completion of your degree programme, non-EU international students can remain in Gibraltar for a further two years for full-time employment in a local businesses.
