The Information Management department has an excellent reputation. Study with us and you'll enjoy a close relationship with practitioners (both local and national), as well as academics highly respected in the information management field.

Always working with the professional community to develop relevant courses, we also maintain a close relationship with the Chartered Institute of Information and Library Professionals. It means an up-to-date and informed approach to preparing students for the realities of work.


We start from the position that information and its management is central to the social, economic and cultural well-being of society.
