Research impact

From global warming to crime scene analysis, our world-leading research focuses on today’s key challenges. Working in collaboration with different disciplines and with other universities, private industry and the public sector, we see science as a means to achieve real-life benefits.

A firm foundation of academic excellence enables us to support and inspire the scientists of the future. We offer undergraduates a broad-based training with specialist options across the disciplines, while postgraduates can take advantage of a supportive and stimulating research environment.

Investing in facilities

The University’s £7m investment in a new life sciences building illustrates the commitment to learning and innovation. Opened in 2009, students, academics and researchers all benefit from the thriving collaborative environment and the cutting-edge facilities that it provides.
