Success is nothing new for the School either. Since our first class graduated in 2007, we’ve been top of the National Student Survey six times out of eight. Our modern, innovative teaching and huge employment rates (99% last year) ensure our graduates have plenty to shout about.

Our students love it here, our academics produce world-class research, and employers value our reputation.
