Professional accreditation

Our courses are designed in consultation with external bodies and employers to help ensure our graduates are best prepared for a rewarding and life-long career.  To achieve this aim, the Faculty actively seeks accreditation of its courses with a range of professional organisations.  Membership of these organisations helps facilitate the development of professional networks, career development and the sharing of knowledge.
