The University of Hertfordshire is at the vanguard of a new type of emerging university – those that are business-like and business-facing. The University of Hertfordshire’s history goes back to 1952, when Hertfordshire County Council built Hatfield Technical College on land donated by the de Havilland aircraft company for educational use.

As well as being the Complete University Guide’s top new UK university in 2010, we have also been ranked within the top 350 world universities by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2011-12, so you can rest assured that by choosing the University of Hertfordshire you are setting yourself up for success.


We have fourteen academic schools arranged into four faculties:
