A word from the Director and Vice-Chancellor

The IEP is all about opening up to the rest of the world. Firstly, we take great care with regard to where our students actually come from and we have an innovative equal-opportunities policy. It's also all about cultural outlook too as we have a great deal of international partnerships. Thanks to the results we gained at the Excellence in Research Awards it is also about intellectual outlook and approach.  When these three elements are put together we get on the one hand open-mindedness which improves the social utopian view of a better understanding of the world in which we live. Secondly, they enable the excellent integration of our qualified students into the world of work. So, come share in our aspirations!
