Our links with industry

As the place of useful learning we've forged many historic links with industry to provide a flexible, innovative learning environment to the benefit of our students.

We understand that your education is about preparing you for the real world. We work closely with a wide range of organisations from the private, public and third sectors to ensure you'll gain practical experience and valuable insights that will set you up for success in your future career.

Our academic departments have strong links with employers and professional bodies and work collaboratively in a number of different ways. These vary by discipline and include:

  • sector-specific advisory boards which ensure the skills we are equipping our graduates with are the right ones
  • guest lectures from practitioners and external experts
  • student dissertation topics and placements in partnership with employers
  • student consultancy clinics
  • Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) link forward-thinking businesses with the UK's world-class knowledge bases to deliver innovation projects led by inspired graduates

This means you won't just graduate with a degree - but with the skills, knowledge, and networks needed to thrive in your chosen field.
