What the University Alliance says: 

University Alliance represents 12 universities who are leaders in delivering technical and professional education. They work to influence government and the policy landscape to ensure the conditions are optimal for these institutions to thrive, creating the best learning environment and outcomes for their students. 

Alliance universities power the UK’s workforce. They provide opportunities for students ranging from NHS and other public sector training to applied scientific research; from architecture, journalism and film making, to engineering and technology specialisms that are industry focused. Alliance universities have historical roots stretching back for centuries, with many having worked closely with commercial and professional partners for more than 150 years. 

Courses at Alliance universities tend to be practical and hands-on, with innovative skills-led teaching using the latest technology and facilities, and access to real-world experience and work placements. A large proportion of courses at Alliance universities are accredited by professional bodies. They are at the cutting edge of research and innovation to solve real-world problems; providing great education while also making a positive impact on the wider community.

With close links to business and industry, many courses are designed in partnership with future employers, meaning students will graduate equipped with the necessary job-ready skills to make them some of the most employable and enterprising in the country.  Vanessa WIlson (CEO, University Alliance),
