High quality teaching & learning

We are committed to providing the high quality teaching that is critical to creating the world's future leaders and problem solvers. We excel in preparing students for a career in industry and the professions - or to start their own company.

In the UK's knowledge economy most new jobs are in high skill areas. We need more graduates if our businesses are to innovate and grow.

The UK needs a higher education system offering high quality teaching and learning to everyone with the ability and aspiration to go to university. We will work with Government and other sector bodies to create a funding and regulatory system that supports the long-term success of UK higher education.
