Founded in 1963 as a result of the Robbins report to widen access to higher education, our founding principles of equality and opportunity for all, anchored by the highest academic standards in teaching and research, remain at the heart of who we are and what we do.
We aim to foster a community where enquiring minds can thrive and where the status quo is constantly challenged. Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and our institutional commitment to Athena SWAN enrich and strengthen our academic mission, and ensure that staff and students work and study in an inclusive and respectful culture.
Our focus on delivering a holistic education is underpinned by significant investment in a range of programmes including international mobility, employer co-designed employability, and extracurricular activities, to empower our students and prepare them for a globally competitive labour market.
The principles of equality and opportunity for all are integral to our admissions policy that provides a professional and fair service for all applicants. We are further enhancing our approach to admissions by recognising that not everyone has had an equal opportunity to demonstrate their ability at school or college. That means we take into account more than just exam results, to assess potential and recognise achievements in a broader context.

This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how the student body is split between different degree programmes with differing rates of attainment. Nor does it show students' progress relative to their attainment on entry to university.
