In Brief

In Brief is your monthly news round-up, giving you concise summaries of the essential information you need as a member of staff at the University. All articles are short, relevant to all staff and are categorised as "for action", "for information" or simply "nice to know".

In Brief is sent to all members of staff on the first Friday of the month – unless the date falls on a closure day at our Whiteknights campus.
