Our strategy

Growing capacity and influence

We will grow capacity in key areas of teaching, research and enterprise by investing strategically and developing international partnerships and collaborations. We will advance areas in which we have a critical research mass and withdraw from those where this is unachievable.

We will reinforce the breadth of our academic offering across both our campuses, with continued emphasis on subjects with international recognition. We will listen to our students, employers and other key partners to ensure that our academic provision develops in line with their requirements. By capitalising on emerging opportunities to review the scope of our academic provision, we will introduce new areas and withdraw from those that are no longer appropriate.

We will raise our profile and strengthen our connections with policy makers, business, industry and the community, achieving recognition as a leading international university, whose contributions are sought and valued.
