Faculti delivers the latest breakthroughs, research news and academic insight, communicated by the world’s leading figures in short, accessible digital media. The Faculti community is predominantly the higher education, academic and research community, but also associated professional organisations such as hospitals and schools. You can experience Faculti in a number of ways: as a guest, as a free member or as a subscriber. Please remember out small institution memberships allow us to offer this substantial free offering, and pay our operational and staffing costs.
Founded by a school teacher and inspired by the confirmation of the Higgs Boson particle in 2013, Faculti contacted Professor John Ellis, CERN and Kings College London, about making a short interview of the ground breaking news. Professor Ellis’ enthusiasm and support led to the first Faculti interview.
By the end of 2014 we had covered 150 figures, by 2016 we had covered 500. In 2019 we were close to 2000, we then developed the single-sign on technology and administrative, technical and creative team to deliver a sustainable platform. Faculti now produces 2000 new insights globally.
Today we host insights from across the world’s leading institutions including The United Nations, the British Parliament, the Bank of England, Harvard University, Stanford University, MIT, Caltech, New York University, Oxford University, Cambridge University and the University of the Arts London, and leading figures from Ambassadors and Diplomats, Poet Laureates, Oscar Award Nominees, Pulitzer Prize Winners and global thinkers.

What others say:
Faculti is an invaluable resource for students and general members of the public exploring disciplines and issues. They are also important for researchers to share their ideas and thinking with broader audiences, and for universities to showcase their academic staff and research strengths.
Trevor Marchand, Emeritus Professor of Social Anthropology, School of Oriental and African Studies
I’ll be using Faculti insights as online teaching material with my students.
Alpesh Masuria, University West of England, and Executive at the British Education Studies Association
Faculti’s aim is to communicate research in a way that is accessible to the wider public. The videos are professionally made and the participants present their ideas clearly in an unadorned, simple way, largely relying on direct, to camera communication, without any other audiovisual aids. A simple idea, well executed.

The Faculti team has produced informative, accessible insights that convey substance without being overbearing. Viewers can be spurred either to find out more or to come away satisfied with a modicum of new, valuable knowledge.
Susan Sugarman, Princeton University
Faculti is great for accessing new, cutting edge content from across the spectrum. It is a brilliant research and knowledge exchange platform and brings key stakeholders together – policymakers, academics, professionals, students and importantly the public for maximum impact.
John Hemming, Member of British Parliament
Faculti creates a deeper understanding of research, including inter-disciplinary studies, because the visual impact is important and it cross-cuts with other debates making it inter-disciplinary. Students will appreciate the succinct summaries presented and the importance of the subject matter communicated.

I teach history, and assign my students chapters from McCormick’s Origins of the European Economy. I found the McCormick video – and we watched it in class in conjunction with the reading.
Laura E. Wangerin, Seton Hall University
Working with Faculti was a pleasure. The videographer was talented and well-informed, and the interview was painless – even pleasant. The Faculti staff quickly prepared and presented the video clip on the Faculti website, and did an excellent job with it. I have received nothing but compliments about the video, and look forward to working with Faculti again.
