Open for Business

A research intensive Russell Group university committed to knowledge transfer (the process of using results of higher education research to benefit both the economy and society) we invite businesses to collaborate with us to access a powerhouse of knowledge and ideas.

Through our campus in London, we are ideally placed to build on our excellent networks with the professional community both nationally and internationally. We are opening our doors not only to students wanting to study in the Capital, but also to businesses wishing to develop mutually beneficial partnerships alongside our academic offer.

Our existing business partners have:

  • Accessed areas of our research expertise, offering the means to transform ideas into creative solutions, improved performance, new technologies and strategies
  • Connected with our thriving alumni network of more than 200,000 around the world, and our current students through placements, projects and internships
  • Hosted conferences, public lectures, bespoke events and meetings in our high specification learning facilities in the centre of London
  • Benefitted from academic/professionally accredited courses and customized commercial, professional or technical training programmes

Engagement with industry and professional bodies is diverse - ranging from bespoke CPD for partners including Home Office, MOD, National College of Policing;  to hosting conference and workshops for key stakeholders including National Institute of Health Research.  In addition we support a variety of networking events including London Chamber of Commerce and have excellent links with a range of professional bodies, for example, ICAEW.

Knowledge exchange partnerships help improve competitiveness, productivity and performance of business;  and engagement aligned to our research priorities remains a key priority for our London campus.

This engagement with industry helps us remain relevant and responsive to the needs of business and we welcome enquiries from a range of key stakeholders.
