Faculty organisation and structure

Each Faculty is headed by an Executive Dean. A Faculty Steering Group meets regularly and consists of:

  • Executive Dean (chair)
  • Head of Departments/Schools (and Centres where applicable) within the Faculty
  • Deputy Dean (Education)
  • Faculty Manager

The Executive Dean has line management responsibility of the Deputy Dean (Education) and the Heads of Departments (and Centres) within the Faculty. The Executive Dean is supported by and works closely with the Faculty Manager, who in turn co-ordinates the Faculty Support Team.

The Faculty Support Team comprises a combination of dedicated appointments and a number of existing staff from the central administration who are locally deployed and whose roles are designed to enable closer working with the Faculties.

Each Faculty Support Team comprises staff working in the areas of:

  • HR
  • Finance
  • Research
  • Education
  • Employability
  • Communications and Marketing

Other central administrative functions such as Admissions, Recruitment and Planning also link closely with Faculties.
