All students are able to benefit from a huge range of academic and personal support services and we have won the β€˜Outstanding Support for Students’ category at the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards for two years running (2017 and 2018). Our award-winning Careers and Employability Service and students’ unions help students enhance their transferable skills, gain relevant work experience, get first-hand insight into graduate careers and, though curricular and co-curricular activities, develop key graduate attributes that top employers are looking for.

The University is a major educational, economic and cultural force throughout its region, and our position as the gateway to Europe is reinforced by our multinational community: we have students from 159 different nationalities, 40% of our academic and research staff are from outside the UK and our curriculum supports study & work abroad opportunities.
