School of Informatics

Our working environment

Welcome to our friendly, supportive and diverse community

With approximately 250 academic and research staff, 100 support staff and almost 1,300 students, Informatics is the second largest School in the College of Science and Engineering. The rich cultural diversity of our community reflects the international nature of our staff and student body.

Around 50 different countries, from Algeria to Venezuela, are represented among our staff, about half of whom are UK nationals and half non-UK.

We aim to ensure that our culture and systems support flexible and family-friendly working and recognise and value diversity across all our staff and students. The School has an active programme offering support and professional development for all staff, providing mentoring, training, and networking opportunities.

The School of Informatics holds a Silver Athena SWAN award, in recognition of our commitment to advance gender equality in higher education and research.
