“What makes our university stand out is a clear vision to offer a good value UK education that is more personal, relevant, and business-focused. We’re also passionately committed to improving what we do every day, and are open to fresh ideas and new ways of doing things. As an institution we must always move forward.”
– Professor John Coyne, Vice-Chancellor
