About University of Hertfordshire

The University of Hertfordshire (UH) Business School was opened in 2003 and currently has over 4,300 students who participate in more than 50 student organizations. Though UH offers a full range of business courses, it is an especially good fit for Accounting majors. The Business School, located in a ‘state of the art’ campus on the de Havilland site, has excellent teaching and learning resources and on-campus accommodation – yet is only a short distance from central London and the historic city of St Albans.

 

United Kingdom

Hatfield, England

Hatfield resides in the county of Hertfordshire, which is situated just north of London (30-minute train ride) with Essex to the east, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire to the north, and Buckinghamshire to the west. Hertfordshire is also home to St Albans, a predominantly Georgian town that dates back to Roman times, and Hatfield House, one of Britain’s most important stately homes and the county’s top attraction.
