University Centre St Helens offers a friendly and supportive learning environment, and with smaller class sizes you will be an individual, not a number. Our highly skilled, dedicated lecturers will help you get the most out of your degree, ensuring that you have plenty of regular contact time with them. In addition to a supportive, learning environment, you will have access to an exclusive Higher Education student lounge, IT suite and dedicated Higher Education areas in our libraries.


Library UCSH

Over the past year we have spent over £1 million investing in our libraries. They have a substantial collection of learning resources to support your studies including books, a wealth of magazines, DVDs and fiction. Our 24/7 library of online databases, journals and eBooks means that you can study at home or anywhere in the world, as well as on campus, at a time to suit you.

University Centre St Helens recognises that we all have different learning styles, that is why we offer a range of study areas, including group study areas, quiet study spaces and independent study zones in order to meet your needs. If you are studying a degree at University Centre St Helens that is affiliated with a partner university, you will also have access to the partner university’s library resources, as well as those at University Centre St Helens.
