Embrace the Difference
We’re not like other universities.
We’re more dynamic in our
thinking, more international in our
ambitions, and more agile in our
approach. We’re also more open
to new ideas, and quicker to act
on them. So get used to thinking
differently, influencing progress
and contributing to some of the
fastest and most exciting growth
in our sector. Real change happens
here, and it happens all the time.
Embrace the possibilities, and you
could well spark our next big step
Feel the Love
The learning we provide is
transformative, accessible and
democratic. It changes society as
well as lives, and opens doors to
people who wouldn’t otherwise be
able to study. The pride we take
in this is shared by everyone here.
It unites us, and drives us to push
for better. And, as you’ll find, it’s
contagious. So come and live your
passion for education – bringing
projects to life that really mean
something to you, and to thousands
of students around the world.
Innovate in your own way
To open education to everyone, we
stay open to ideas from everyone.
We encourage experimentation
and entrepreneurial thinking,
wherever it comes from, and are
always exploring the potential of
new technology and tools to help
us deliver better. So if you ever
have a great idea, try it out. And if it
works, share it. We’re a safe space
where you’ll be free to try new
things, and able to turn your ideas
into impact quicker than ever
Never Stand Still
Our growth over recent years
has been remarkable, and we’re
nowhere near done. We’re building
our team, exploring new regions
and evolving our offering to reach
new audiences and student groups
around the world. And this means
you’ll never stand still with us. The
progress you’re an active part of will
present you with fresh challenges,
and new opportunities to explore,
learn and make an impact every
day. Your ambition will drive ours.
And it’ll take us both forwards.
Belong and Be Yourself
Our culture is as supportive,
empowering and multicultural as the
education we provide. We respect
and listen to different perspectives.
We encourage rather than blame,
and challenge each other in the right
way. And we collaborate with shared
passion towards common goals. The
result is an atmosphere that’ll bring
out the best in you. You’ll be trusted to
deliver, supported to grow, and free to
find the right balance between your
life and your work. In other words,
you’ll be able to be yourself

Having signed the ‘Charter for Employers Positive about Mental Health’, we are committed to creating a supportive and open culture, where colleagues feel able to talk about mental health confidently, and aspire to appropriately support the mental wellbeing of all staff.
