As a student-centred, learning-led university, we believe that the creation and application of new knowledge is fundamental to our mission.
Our research and professional practice has impact for society and business, informing our curriculum and enhancing learning opportunities for our students. Our students are involved in the development and application of new knowledge, working collaboratively with staff and other students. In our view, this is a defining feature of an excellent higher education experience.
Each of our academic schools contribute to our learning-led, research-informed environment. We embed research in all our activities, ensuring students and staff benefit from and contribute to vibrant subject communities, engaged in fundamental and applied research.
Our six Research Priority Areas build on our strengths and recognise the opportunities we have to contribute to contemporary challenges.
