We are organised into six departments and adopt a multidisciplinary approach to pursue integration of research, teaching and enterprise. This approach leads us to continuously reinforce our connections with industry and society, both locally and internationally, which ultimately enable us to further deliver impactful research and improve the learning experience for all (staff, students, and other external stakeholders).
We are very proud of what we have accomplished so far, and we believe that by attracting great talent we can further enhance our scholarship and embrace innovation in key areas of competence (Sustainability, Digital and Quantitative Analytics, Entrepreneurship, Inclusive Society and Future of Work). In so doing, with a focus on excellence, we can continue to grow and make a sustainable impact on students, academia, business, and society.
We are a top 100 global university (QS World University Rankings, 2022) and a founding member of the Russell Group, with over 150 years of history. Home to over 19,000 students from more than 130 countries, and around 6,000 members of staff, we are proud of our diverse, vibrant and welcoming community.
Our innovative thinking and pioneering research is making an impact on a global scale; we are finding solutions for some of the biggest challenges which our planet is facing. This is the place where fibre-optic research is creating a faster, smarter internet; where the immune system is leading the fight against cancer; where expertise is tackling the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance; and where resources are being secured for the world’s growing populations.
