The University Board is the University’s highest decision-making body; and the Vice-Chancellor of the University is the Head of the University. The University is made up of a number of University-wide staff positions, units and bodies that support the University Management and the organisation in different matters. The University’s core activities, i.e. research and education, are organised and run by the University’s eight faculties, which comprise 38 departments, as well as by the University's Centres of Expertise and Research, which are approximately thirty in number.
