The University is divided into nine groups known as faculties. Each faculty is subdivided into schools, institutes and centres. Key contacts and web links for each are listed on the following pages. For individuals, see our A-Z staff listings.

The new Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures was formed in August 2016. It brings together the breadth and strength represented by the nine dynamic and diverse schools listed below.
