University Organisation Structure

About the organisational structure

The organisation chart, which describes the academic/management structure of the University, has three main purposes:

  1. to provide a common framework to underpin our four main data management systems: finance, staff records, student records and the space record system. Ensuring that each system structure maps to this framework (despite necessary differences) makes it possible to compare data from different systems;
  2. to act as a framework for resource allocation within the University; and
  3. to provide the basis for the University’s Provider Profile return to HESA.
