    Wrexham Glyndŵr University started in 2008, so we are still one of the UK's youngest universities. It is a vibrant, friendly place where each student's learning and future is given personal attention. Our name comes from Welsh scholar and hero Owain Glyndŵr, and we aim to champion some of the same philosophies as him. We are proud to name our university after a man who cherished learning, loved his country, embraced an international outlook, and continuously demonstrated an inspiring and enterprising approach to life. His spirit lies at the heart of Wrexham Glyndŵr University, where we set out to be bold, enterprising, and open to all in everything that we do.
    We have been delivering education at our main Wrexham campus since 1887 when we were known as the Wrexham School of Science and Art. We first started offering degrees in 1924, but we have come a long way since then. Today, industry-led courses are at the heart of our offering. We pride ourselves on our links with leading local and regional employers, such as Airbus, Kellogg's, JCB, and the BBC. Their knowledge and expertise are fed back into our courses, ensuring that our students are provided with only the most relevant skills for their future careers.
    We are incredibly proud of the opportunities we provide for non-traditional backgrounds to enter higher education. More than half of our students study part-time. We are one of the UK's leading universities supporting students from lower socio-economic backgrounds through university thanks to our comprehensive Widening Access program in the local community. The university is also the first HE institution in North Wales to become a Stonewall Diversity Champion.
    We began with just our two campuses in Wrexham (Plas Coch and Regent Street), but we have since grown to include campuses in St Asaph and Northop in North Wales and a satellite campus in Kingston-upon-Thames in London. We are a small university compared to many others, but with that comes a great sense of community with a fantastic support network for all our students and staff.
    Our Mission is to work in partnership to inspire and educate our students and enable social and economic success. The Vision encompasses seven commitments carried into the Strategic Framework's main body and supported by several actions.
