Learn from the experts
Staff within the School of Aviation and Security have a high level of working knowledge, based on industry experience, allowing you to gain a deep insight into the latest trends and requirements of your chosen field.
As well as receiving top-class lectures and seminars, students are also supported by personal tutors, module leaders and course leaders. In addition, guest speakers often deliver sessions for students within the University to enrich their learning.
Leading facilities at your disposal
The School teaches courses across our three campuses (Aylesbury, High Wycombe and Uxbridge), each with their own state-of-the-art facilities to support your learning.
Our library is the perfect place to find the resources you need and a quiet place to study, filled with four floors of books, journals, computer suites and study rooms – resources are also available digitally through our Virtual Learning Environment.
We also have a range of specialised course-related facilities. For student pilots, we’re one of the very few UK universities to have an FNPT II Flight Simulator at our High Wycombe Campus – as part of your training you’ll have exclusive access and will be able to gain vital experience, without leaving the ground.
For all students studying aviation, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level, we have additional specialised simulation facilities allowing them to experience real-life airport scenarios, as well as developing their abilities in airfield planning and operations, and crisis and emergency management.
Utilise our strong industry partnerships and resources
Our School’s academic teams have strong industry links, and a commitment to developing the knowledge and capabilities our students need to thrive in their chosen sectors. These are used to enhance lectures and seminars delivered by the School through guest speakers, and in some sectors, provides students access to seasonal employment opportunities and free membership to relevant bodies to build on their knowledge.
