Staff teaching on our bachelor’s programmes are supported and encouraged to undertake research, enhancing teaching and learning for our students and helping them develop intellectual independence in an authentic and academically robust environment.
Our research is guided by our Head of Research and our Research Committee and Academic Board, and staff get a chance to meet and present their work at a yearly staff Research Symposium, along with actively presenting at conferences and key symposiums.
Graduates of our undergraduate programmes benefit from research-informed teaching that boosts critical thinking skills. Learning is maximised through practical projects and delivery methods that echo the industries graduates will move into, today and tomorrow.
Research-informed teaching also adds depth and breadth to our postgraduate programmes, and many of our students embark on research as part of their learning. Project-based learning emulates the current and future creative and IT industries and develops crucial critical thinking skills that set students up for success.
