About us

We aim to:

  • enhance the educational experience of our students by providing relevant external links.
  • provide a network to support engaged research in the Faculty.
  • connect external partners to students and staff to help benefit your projects.

As well as working closely with our students and staff to help grow their knowledge, skills and employability, we work with a range of external partners. Our partners range from small local charities and social enterprises to government organisations and large corporates. 

We also work closely with the University’s Careers Service, Alumni Service, and Research and Enterprise Development (RED) to ensure that whatever your query, we can work with you to find a solution.
