WORLD CLASS RESEARCH
We are committed to pursuing world class research that impacts positively on the world. Our research is frequently interdisciplinary in nature, embracing disciplines within and outside of the College, and combining expertise from across humanities, social sciences and sciences, and collaborating with other world leading researchers from around the globe.
INNOVATIVE RESEARCH-INSPIRED TEACHING AND A PLATFORM FOR FUTURE SUCCESS
We place considerable emphasis on providing outstanding, innovative teaching inspired by our research and to creating a learning environment that offers a rich student experience to those who study in the College. Our degrees have high academic standing and are designed to prepare students optimally for employment or further training in a wide variety of professional careers.
Through our programmes and associated opportunities, we aim to equip students with the discipline-specific and generic skills and experiences that are highly sought by employers.
