Through our staff and students' many achievements, we present cutting-edge research, inspirational teaching and innovative thinking, attracting some of the greatest minds from around the globe. Our work is continuously expanding our knowledge of our planet and the lives of ordinary people. Our research and teaching span:

We work closely with other universities, charities, the third sector, communities and governments, and business and industry to respond to global and social challenges and do justice to future generations.
