Why study with SAWIOT?

Cost-effective education: Lower tuition fees and reduced living expenses make it a more budget-friendly option than attending a traditional university.

Personalised support: Smaller class sizes mean more individualised attention from lecturers and better opportunities for one-on-one interactions, encouraging a supportive learning environment.

Community engagement: Studying locally allows you to stay connected with your community, build local networks and access job opportunities through local connections. 

Degree-level qualifications: Qualifications are academically and educationally equivalent to university degrees, reflecting the same depth of knowledge and skill.

New podcast: The Mindful Apprentice

In partnership with Nationwide and The Sound Doctor, SAWIOT recently released a limited-edition podcast series, The Mindful Apprentice, aimed at supporting the mental health and wellbeing of students.
