The Official Tourism Website for Shropshire

Shropshire is an excellent place to study. Shropshire has a growing community of higher education students. We have more choices than ever for places to boost your knowledge and further your career. Living in Shrewsbury or Telford while you study is shown to be fairly affordable, compared with other parts of the UK.

University Centre Shrewsbury, located in our medieval market town surrounded by the River Severn, is an inspiring place for undergraduate and postgraduate study. The university, a collaboration between the University of Chester and Shropshire Council, has a strong reputation for research and continuing professional development courses.

University Centre Telford is the result of a partnership between the University of Wolverhampton, Telford College and Telford & Wrekin Council. The smart, bright centre in its convenient Southwater One location brings many opportunities for personal and professional study in Shropshire.

Shropshire has a world-class agricultural study centre in Newport. Set on a 635-hectare farm, Harper Adams University (founded in 1901) is the leading specialist university not only for farming skills but also for vital research into resource management and sustainable business practices, including food production and processing, animal sciences and engineering.
