A civic university

We've trained over 800 advanced apprentices at our AMRC Training Centre.

Our social and public responsibility is integral to our University – to our education, research and partnerships.

In the spotlight: Apprenticeships

Our AMRC training centre trains young people in an advanced environment where planes, trains and supercars are designed and built. We also employ talented apprentices in departments across the University.
