The University competes equally for students and reputation with the UK’s major regional universities. We help our region compete head to head for investment and growth with major city regions such as Bristol, Manchester, London and Tyneside.
As one of the UK’s biggest universities by student number, our size allows us to invest in develop new courses and facilities. We have a major presence in all of the cities in the region.
Our Chancellor the Rt Revd and Rt Hon Lord (Rowan) Williams has said that the University is “both a substantial presence in Britain and in the global higher education community, and a major force for change in Wales.”
