Key areas in academic portfolio
Strong recruiting course which attracts students from across the UK and Ireland, as well as round the world. Probably the University's most recognised area of expertise. Strong in graduate employability.
Again, a good recruiter with a very strong reputation in the sector. The Education faculty is regularly chosen to pilot Government schemes.
Still fairly young but has grown in reputation and numbers with the explosion in interest in media over the past 10 years. TV and Film Production, Broadcast and Print Journalism are particularly strong.
The Journalism department expanded its offer in 2010 with Magazine, Fashion and Sports Journalism coming on to the curriculum. Strong connections with media groups BBC, ITN, ITV, Johnston Press, Bauer Radio, Northern Film and Media. Media culture is carrying out research that is classified in the RAE as world-leading.
Sports science is currently enjoying a rise in numbers similar to that achieved in media five years ago. The level of academic expertise and specialist facilities is certainly helping to maintain that level of student growth. CitySpace is expected to help drive up numbers further. Has strong connections with University and Students' Union sports arms.
The University's academic expertise in automotive, its work and relationship with Nissan has led to a national reputation. AMAP covers a broad range of industrial applications and digital engineering technologies and provides a range of valuable services to manufacturers.
