There continues to be significant investment in the single-site campus which enjoys a rich cultural offer. The University is committed to adapting its approach to meet the evolving needs of its students, regional, national and global collaborators, and external partners. Under the leadership of the new Vice-Chancellor, Professor Susan Lea, the University is entering a period of strategic change. To strengthen its leadership, and to lead new initiatives in line with this exciting strategy, the University now wishes to appoint a new Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education), who will be a full member of the University Leadership Team.
