The University community thrives on exploration and discovery, and offers the right balance of excellent teaching and research, matched by an enviable quality of life. The University has enjoyed a period of tremendous growth, and we have achieved our ambition to be a top thirty research University, soaring up the 2014 Research Excellence Framework* league table to 26th in the UK from 52nd in 2008.
