The School of Social Sciences promotes excellence in higher education, research and consultancy. We offer a diverse range of courses at undergraduate, postgraduate and professional level.

Students can select courses that have been designed in partnership with professional bodies and outside organisations within the public and private sector.

You will be taught by enthusiastic, engaged and expert staff. All of our courses draw upon their established expertise, research interests and industry experience.
