International Partnerships

Why work with us?

Partnering with us means access to more than 2,000 academic and research staff and a wealth of experience of working with and in industry. We see working in partnership as a two-way process which offers the mutual benefit of enhancing global experiences for our students and staff, strengthening the depth and impact of our research and bringing new perspectives to our teaching. 

Our strategic vision is to continue to grow our international partnerships to help us understand the world and make it better.

Research Partnerships

One of our strengths is multidisciplinary research, in which researchers from different departments and backgrounds work together to bring new perspectives to problem solving and discovery. We have well-established partnerships with a number of universities, both in the UK and abroad, which extends our global reach and enhances our input to regional and national activities.
