A member of the prestigious Russell Group, we are a dynamic, research-intensive university.
We work collaboratively in partnership with institutions across the world to develop life-saving discoveries and new technologies that tackle some of the most pressing global challenges.
Our 30+ academic departments undertake groundbreaking research that underpins our inspiring teaching and challenges students to dream big, think critically and change the world. Each college is different with its own personality depending on its history, accommodation, layout, location, facilities and the people who live there. But every college has the same aims to cultivate your academic curiosity, develop your skills and employability, and support your health and wellbeing.
Although some departments are located within college buildings, you don’t need to apply for a particular college based on your course. Our campus location means that all our colleges are a short walk to our departments and teaching buildings.
You’ll grow to love your college, whichever it is.
