As a faculty we deliver an outstanding programme of professional development; promote postgraduate research, and facilitate creative opportunities for postgraduate students to interact and gain widespread experience.
We are contributing to the University strategy, notably the focus on outstanding multidisciplinary research with practical relevance, and excellent student experiences. It presents opportunities for innovation in research, education and knowledge exchange. We are also currently undertaking research in seven active research areas which address issues in society.
