Student's Affairs

Learning doesn’t just happen in a classroom. Opportunities for teaching and development exist everywhere and at all times on campus and it’s our job to seize these moments. As student affairs, our job is to foster and promote these interactions.

Campus Sporting

We've a strong sporting ground, whether you wish to  play as part of a team or just want to keep fit! There are plenty of activities for you to choose from to help you stay healthy and active including soccer, badminton & basketball and many more. 

Accomodation
