Strong links with industry & professions
We understand our role in a changing economy and we pride ourselves on our work with employers as well as our links, connections and partnerships with industry and the professions. We believe these are the connections that count.
For more than 100 years, we have been at the forefront of research and teaching excellence geared towards industry and the professions. Even today we design our courses with industry.
Through our work on the Wilson and Witty Reviews, we have demonstrated the importance of university-business engagement. This continues to be important for the Government to deliver a strong and rebalanced economy. We will work with business and other sector bodies to ensure that our universities deliver job-ready graduates.
