Board of Governors
The University is always pleased to consider expressions of interest from prospective candidates for membership of the Board of Governors.
The role and responsibilities of the Board of Governors are set out in detail in the Instrument and Articles of Government. These give effect to the Further and Higher Education Act (1992) under the terms of which the institution achieved university status in 1992.
Should you wish to contact the Governors, please email Jeff Hughes, Head of Governance Services.
