Corporate Support Division (CORPS)

The Division of Corporate Support contains three areas of activity that principally support the areas of teaching, research and good governance, namely the NHS Liaison Unit (NHSLU), the Joint Biological Services Unit (JBIOS) and the Joint Internal Audit Unit (AUDIT). The Divisional Director is Mr M Grant, who is also Director of the NHS Liaison Unit.

The NHS Liaison Unit both provides a link between the University and the NHS in Wales, particularly for policy matters, as well as hosting the WAG SIFT Coordinating Unit which works with the School of Medicine and the NHS in Wales on the allocation, funding and quality assurance of clinical placements for undergraduate medical students throughout Wales. The Joint Biological Services Unit supports the research activity of a number of University Schools through the provision and management of animal research facilities. The Joint Internal Audit Unit provides a range of audit and other professional financial services to both Cardiff and Swansea Universities.
