There has never been a more exciting time to join us.
A new seven year University Strategy emphasises our commitment to widening opportunity through the power of education and contributing our talents to creating a fairer world, and a more prosperous region. Significant investment in what we offer – including state of the art sports and science facilities, a new flagship Creative Centre due opening in 2021 and a sister-campus located in central London – signal our engagement with 21st century opportunities. Exciting new partnerships locally, nationally and internationally are creating the conditions to educate people in new and innovative ways, giving more learners the chance to benefit from Higher Education and our staff the means to extend their impact.
We are putting inspirational learning and outstanding research at the heart of this strategy, recognising our academic expertise as our greatest asset and investing in enabling this expertise to thrive.
As a Stonewall Global Diversity Champion and holder of the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice, our strength lies in the supportive, inclusive network that exists within our teams.
