Faculty of Arts, Business and Applied Social Science

I would like to welcome you to the Faculty of Arts, Business and Applied Social Science. This is a newly established Faculty with 126 staff and 2,210 students. We place student experience at the centre of our endeavours and are proud of our record in offering courses that generate high student satisfaction and which lead to high rates of employability among our graduates. 

We operate within a culture which is collegiate and where everyone is empowered to succeed. As a Faculty we not only engage in the effective transfer and dissemination of knowledge but staff here also engage in its  production. This is evident in the production of books, articles published in high quality journals. It is also evident in the exhibitions and performances in which staff also routinely engage.  

Staff in the Faculty of Arts, Business and Applied Social Science have established an excellent working relationship with a range of organisations, statutory and non-statutory in and across the region. This is, not least, evidenced by the cutting edge applied research in which staff here engage, research which is already making  a difference to the life chances of young people in the region particularly those from more disadvantaged communities.
