Being original

We are the original redbrick. Find out what being original means to our students and what it could mean for you.

One of the great things about the department is that you are being taught by leaders in their fields – reading books by the people that teach you. It’s very much an open door policy in the department and there is a very strong connection between lecturer and student.
