The University is a great institution with fantastic international networks and a real commitment to serving the region. The ethos of the Faculty is very much about applied learning, making sure that graduates are work-ready with the essential knowledge and skills to make a difference to any organisation they join from day one. There are exceptional staff in the Faculty, highly committed to ensuring that students reach their potential.”
