We have a strong sense of place combined with an international outlook. We are particularly proud of our role as a civic university. Our teaching and research are shaped by our wide range of external partnerships with communities, voluntary and community organisations, professional bodies, business and industry.
We are passionate about interdisciplinarity and working with our students and our external partners to: create a rich, relevant and challenging educational experience; generate new insights and understanding through our research; and co-produce innovative responses to many of society’s key challenges.
Through our education programmes, research and engagement activities we are driven by a desire to help everyone reach their full potential and contribute fully to an open, inclusive, culturally enriched, creative, sustainable and connected world.
I would encourage you to explore our Faculty website and check out our Departments and Specialist Centres. Whether you are a student, academic, PhD researcher or professional services staff, we hope you will join us in our dynamic and creative community of enquiry, learning and engagement.
