Our students leave with academic expertise, training in practical skills and usually do a work placement as part of their degree.
Our high-quality research is well recognised; with our work judged as ‘internationally excellent' in the last government Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008). We incorporate our research into our teaching, ensuring students receive the benefit of our expertise.
