Highlighting our impact on the region

As a university at the heart of our region, we take great pride in our regional identity, determined to support our community for the good of all.

With over 30,000 students the University is one of the most popular universities in the country, offering exceptional teaching and research, with particular commitment to applying our expertise to solving real-world problems.

Recent years have seen the University play an even greater leadership role in the region - leading improvements in social mobility, quality of life and the economy through the impact of our students, teaching, research and partnerships.

With our 'Heart of the Region' campaign, we're highlighting what we do to support this ambition and outlining our plans to benefit the region even further.
