The university has five main faculties for its students: arts, and creative industries, business, law and tourism, education and society, health sciences and wellbeing, and technology. The university recently announced the opening of a new School of Medicine, with the first cohort of students starting in September 2019.

It is world-leading in several areas of research, including pharmacy, engineering, sports and exercise sciences, education and social work. It was the first educational institution in the area to install a digital computer. The PDP8 model was so large a crane was needed to haul it through the roof of the building in which it was to be housed. Also home to the National Glass Centre, students can watch free glass blowing demonstrations and study glass and ceramics.
