Welcome

We are proud to be one of the UK’s leading universities. We were awarded gold, the highest rating, in the government’s Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) and the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) ranked us 17th in the UK for research intensity with world-leading research in all our subjects.

We are also proud to be truly international, with nearly 160 countries represented among a student population of 20,000. We have strong links with over 388 institutions world-wide and the activities of our four postgraduate centres on the European continent are a key component of our enduring commitment to Europe.

Our activities bring economic, cultural and social benefits to the region, and we will continue to ensure our international ambitions have a direct and positive impact.

I hope you will be able to visit us at one of our many locations but until then, please explore the website to find out more about our courses, our research and our staff. You will soon see why we rank among the UK’s best universities.
