Directorate of Academic Support

The Directorate of Academic Support was formed in October 2013 under the leadership of the newly appointed Director Fiona Parsons. The purpose of the Directorate is to continually enhance academic support across the University.

This will be achieved through:

  • Bringing together a number of complementary areas which play a critical role in student success:  IT Services, Learning & Information Services, Centre for Technology Enhanced Learning and Centre for Academic Practice.
  • Establishing a new, high performing Directorate, which supports the University’s aspiration to be the Opportunity University, putting the student at the heart of university life. 
  • Building on our shared history of collaboration, while realising this opportunity to take a fresh approach.

Further information and updates will be published as the Directorate evolves over the next Academic year.
