Welcome to the News Centre
The News Centre, which consists of the Press Office and Corporate Communications, welcomes news and event information from across the University and provides a central source for media enquiries, both proactively by contacting journalists about our latest research and events, and also reactively by providing expert commentators on a daily basis.
The results from the 2014 National Student Survey (NSS) have been announced with 89% of our students agreeing that "Overall, they were satisfied with the quality of the course."
