We are a university for the world. Working in partnership with others across the globe, we are advancing solutions to real world problems. We are proud to be a founding member of the university networks Universitas 21 and The Guild of European Research Intensive Universities.

We are committed to tackling the most pressing global challenges facing humanity and the natural world. We are delivering against the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and are ranked in the top 20 universities in the QS World Sustainability Rankings. We have pledged to be carbon neutral by 2030 and were the first European university to declare it would divest from fossil fuels by 2024.

We believe that everyone should have fair access to education. We are proud of our long tradition of helping talented people to fulfil their ambitions, regardless of their background or circumstances. Our University of Sanctuary status recognises the safe and welcoming environment we provide for refugees and asylum seekers.

We support our researchers in a positive and collaborative research culture. We deliver an award-winning researcher development programme for postgraduate students. Our 15 centres for doctoral training provide funding and collaboration opportunities.
