Faculty Academic Services

Faculty Academic Services is responsible for the development and delivery of academic administrative services to students and staff across the University.

It is structured around five faculty-based administrations, each of which is led by a Head of Faculty Academic Services and comprises a Learning and Teaching Group and a Management Services Group.

Service enhancement, both to students and to the academic community, is fundamental to everything we do and informs our strong culture of continuous improvement and customer-focussed delivery.

The development and enhancement of strong and effective partnership working with the faculties that we support is the cornerstone of the Faculty Academic Services operation. We also collaborate closely with other Academic Services and central departments to facilitate the delivery of institutional strategic objectives.
