What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files containing pieces of information that websites can store on your computer's hard disk. Cookies enable users to navigate around the website and (where appropriate) allow us to continually improve the website and make it more efficient to use on future visits.
We use two types of cookies on this website:
Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your machine only for as long as you are on the website and are deleted after each visit.
Persistent cookies that remain on your machine until expiry or deletion (many of these have automatic deletion dates). Persistent cookies may store your personal preferences, for example, your language preferences on multi-lingual sites. They may also be used to record activity you may have previously completed, such as completing an online survey, so that you are not asked to complete the survey every time you use the site.

|Advertising cookie: This cookie track visits generated by people who clicked on an Adwords Search or Display ad. This helps us to monitor which ads are relevant and better targeted and show less of others.
We use some 'strictly necessary' cookies within our online services. These are limited to those deemed essential to provide you with the services you have requested, for example, the UK and International Student application form, and therefore must be allowed to continue with that service.

We may need to do this to provide some of our services.
- We sometimes use third parties to assist us in the analysis of visits to and performance of our website, but no personal information is collected and no personal information is sent to the third parties for this purpose.
