Working together – Supporting each other

We are a successful, modern University with clear values and a long history in Higher Education. We offer quality education and an excellent student learning experience in a beautiful region of the South Coast of England. Based in West Sussex our two campuses are located in Chichester and Bognor Regis. A beautiful part of the country, just minutes away from the South Downs National Park and with a premier Blue Flag beach on our doorstep. We are surrounded by rolling countryside, stunning coastlines and historical attractions.

We have a great reputation for providing students and staff alike with the opportunity to achieve excellence within a stimulating and supportive environment. We strive to nurture and facilitate a working environment where all colleagues are equally valued, truly supported and duly recognised for their contribution. We are dedicated to supporting everyone within our community by embedding an inclusive culture through raising awareness of equality and diversity issues.

Our University Strategy ‘Open for Change’, sets out our vision to achieve national and international recognition for the excellence of our teaching, research and innovation, whilst being an outstanding University with a strong external-facing focus. Our latest People Strategy ‘Working together – Supporting each other’, sets out how we will support the talent and aspirations of our staff to realise our University’s strategic ambitions.

All of our staff, irrespective of their role, are instrumental in achieving our University mission and vision. The continued ability of our staff to lead, create and innovate, and the University’s ability to attract, develop and retain teams of talented professionals, is critical to our success. We believe in giving our staff an opportunity to grow and progress and to develop skills and talent by providing access to a wide range of University professional development opportunities to support their own career aspirations.

The University offers a variety of degrees in areas ranging from business, humanities, engineering, creative arts, nursing, teaching, social sciences, music and sport.
