Realising the vision

Our strategy

To achieve the ambitious aims from our mission and vision, we have developed the University Strategy 2015 to 2020. Our strategy brings to life our six vision statements and three enabling activities by detailing exactly how we will achieve our vision and measure our progress.

The strategy is a living document, and staff are encouraged, within their departments, to use the strategic and financial planning process to outline how they can contribute to achieving our Key Performance Indicators (intranet only).

Below, you can also download our Research and Innovation Strategy, Education Strategy, People Strategy and IT Strategy.
