Northop campus

Northop campus

Our Northop campus is where our facilities for land-based learning are based. Set in spectacular Flintshire countryside, the campus offers facilities related to our courses in animal studies and equine science, wildlife and plant biology, geography, ecology, biodiversity and the environment.

The site is accessible off the A55, the main route to the North Wales. The nearest town, Mold, is 3 miles away and Wrexham is within 15 miles.

In addition to lecture and teaching rooms, the campus boasts environmental and science laboratories, an organic farm production unit, ancient woodland and conservation area, and formal and informal gardens.

Northop Equestrian

The site is also home to the land-based campus of our collaborative partner Coleg Cambria, with our students able to take advantage of state-of-the art facilities such as their Small Animals Care Centre, which houses a number of small animals, and incorporates different habitats for animals ranging from marmoset monkeys and rabbits to snakes and fish, and the British Horse Society (BHS) Approved Equine Unit, which includes an indoor arena with viewing gallery, a floodlit outdoor arena, stabling, paddocks and two cross-country courses. There are also facilities for hacking in the grounds.

There is also some student accommodation based at this campus, offering a convenient place to live while studying at Northop, in addition to a sports hall and IT facilities.
