Remarketing cookies

We sometimes use tracking pixels to assist with our marketing and delivery of online advertising.

By better understanding what our audiences are interested in, we can more efficiently promote the University. For example if you have looked at certain pages on our website we might want to highlight our open days or give information about a particular course to you.

The technology to do this is made possible by cookies and as such we may place a ‘remarketing cookie’ during your visit. We are unable to proactively reach out to you personally as the process is anonymized, but you can opt out of these cookies at any time.
