We were one of the first universities to include compulsory professional work placements with every degree, and we now work closely with over 3,000 businesses who offer our students placements that are relevant to their degrees. The results speak for themselves, with 95% of our graduates employed or in further study within six months of graduating.

Whilst maintaining a reputation for excellence in the training of teachers, we have diversified to offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in a range of subjects including Business, Education, Humanities, Journalism, Media, Psychology and Sport. We also have a vibrant postgraduate research community. Applications are invited for this Executive level post within the University
