The LLC (Library and Learning Centre)
The LLC (Library and Learning Centre) was extended and completely refurbished during the summer of 2015 and provides students with a modern, pleasant, and well-resourced environment enabling them to study independently. The LLC has been equipped with a range of new study spaces and IT facilities including pcs, tablets and laptops.
There is a comprehensive collection of books, online resources, e-books, journals and DVDs covering both academic subject areas and extra-curricular interests to stretch and enhance students’ learning experience.
