Applications

Our nurseries are popular and often over-subscribed. You may have heard rumours that it is hard to get a place, or that waiting lists are long. Whilst we cannot guarantee every applicant a place at their first choice of nursery, we have many happy parents and children.

We offer a total of 450 FTE places for eligible staff and students, 332 of which are in the University’s own nurseries. Our ratio of 1 nursery place per 30 members of University staff is significantly better than most other HEIs within the UK (the sector average for the Russell group is 1 place per 61 members of staff*). The average waiting time is currently just 35 days between requested start date and taking up a place.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with your specific requirements and we can help point you in the right direction – we have oversight of where space may be available and always try and offer an alternative if we cannot meet your needs initially.
