We take our values of excellence in education and excellence in research out into the world.
Our research focuses on changing the world for the better. We encourage our students to develop a view of the world that prepares them for life as global citizens. We work in partnership with international institutions, and partnership working is central to our strategic aims.
We value working with others so that together we can do things better, and do better things: we have links with 320 institutions around the world.
We are ranked in the top 25 for research quality in The Times and The Sunday TimesGood University Guide 2018, where we’re also ranked 22nd overall, our highest ever ranking.
We have 14 international academic partnerships with global institutions in China, France, Germany, Japan, Russia and Singapore, and 120 friendship and progression agreements around the world.
We believe that working in partnership is the key to the improvement of humanity and society through the transformational opportunities we jointly create for students.
We are a university that is always looking to make a difference to the lives of others and we are always looking for like-minded organizations to partner with us on this journey.
