Our Values at AECC University College

Our values set out to guide not just what we do but also ‘how’ we do things. We have lived and breathed these values through the pandemic and are proud to stand by them

Jane Johnson


Caring is demonstrated every day by expressing and accepting caring, compassion and respect in our personal and professional relationships. As a health sciences university, we treat people with respect and compassion on a daily basis.

“I’ve been here for 18 years. I love the tight knit community we have at AECC University College, and how everyone cares about each other. That’s why I love coming in to work every day.” – Jane Johnson, AECC University College Receptionist and Administrator

Steve Goode


We take pride in the quality and standards of the work that we do and the relationships we form. We are competent and reliable, working in an ethical way and seek to be excellent in all that we do.

“We’re committed to the use of Information Technology to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of our learning, research and administrative functions. We are always striving to deliver best practice, investing heavily in systems which support our communities on and off campus.” – Steve Goode, Head of IT

Matt Southam


We passionately believe in the power of education to inspire and transform lives, and in healthcare to enable and support people to reach their full potential, to be happy, live well and thrive.

“I’m really passionate about instilling the tools and confidence in our students to go out there and make the world a better place. Teaching and clinical excellence are my passion, and I love inspiring others.” – Matt Southam, Interim Clinical Imaging Lead

Hosanna Cheung


We welcome diversity as an essential component of a healthy society and an enriched educational environment. We strive to create a safe and accessible space where all students and staff feel they belong and can flourish as part of our supportive community. Our patient services are centred on the needs of each individual, delivered in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

“I love how AECC University College is always caring for and supportive of international students. I’ve come all the way from Hong Kong, and I see that it doesn’t matter where you are from – you always feel like you’re a valued member of the community.” – Hosanna Cheung, Asia Pacific Society President, Christian Union President and Year 1 MChiro (Hons) Student

To play our part in solving complex world problems we believe in the power of working together. Our multi-professional environment provides opportunities for collaborative working, interprofessional education and multidisciplinary patient care to benefit our students, staff and patients. We are small and specialist but together with our partners we can make a big difference.

“As collaborative partners in the Integrated Care System, it’s a joy to work closely with AECC University College. The institution continues to develop their education and training courses in response to regional and national needs.” – Hilary Hall, AHP Lead, Dorset Integrated Care System
