University Strategy

In 2008/09 the University conducted a major strategic review, analysing and reflecting on our performance since 2004, and looking at theimplications of external change for our priorities for 2015. The review has reaffirmed much of the broad strategic direction in our 2004-2010 Strategic Plan and has also highlighted new approaches and actions we can take.

It is our vision to be established as one of the leading, modern professional universities in the United Kingdom by 2015. We will have an international reputation for the employability of our graduates and for expertise which can be used to directly enhance the lives and prospects of people and their communities.

In the video below, our Principal Prof Dame Joan K Stringer DBE discusses the current climate that the Higher Education sector is facing and explains how our strategy aims to overcome the challenges ahead.
