We are proud to combine research and teaching that contributes to the economic, social and environmental sustainability of our region. Importantly, our teaching is informed by research. The University has moved, in a comparatively short time, to being research-active – a credit to our staff, students and leaders.

We're committed to keeping research at the heart of our University. You are welcome to download our current Research Plan (pdf, 176kb).
