Who we are:
From our beginnings in 1827, we have grown to be a community of over 23,000 students and over 2,500 staff. The size and complexity isn’t unusual for a University, but it will be different from your previous experiences in school or college and this may take some getting used to.
The University is well placed to support you throughout and beyond your course. Although you will have your own unique background and motivations, you share a common goal with other students – to invest in yourself.
The University is organised into four Faculties, within which are housed the various Schools and Institutes which deliver subject-specific courses. Although you will routinely and regularly interact with the staff and students on your own course, there are also opportunities to meet and work with others who are studying similar subjects. This is all part of the inter-professional experience of being in a University.
This is YOUR University. You have the opportunity to shape your University experience.
