Many of our teaching academics are also research active and participate in industry-renowned research and publication outside of the University’s specialist centres. This may be in the form of collaborations with partner institutions or fellow academics, independent works, or participating in large research groups.
Our academics are known for their contributions to the various canons of their specialisms, and are often invited to be key notes speakers at conferences around the world.
