Our vision for the years ahead

We're a university committed to excellence, integrity, inclusivity and innovation. One of the most international universities in the world, our outlook is distinctively global. Our Strategic Plan sets out our mission and goals for the University until 2019. Extensive consultations with our community and our partners helped us develop our ambitious vision for the years ahead.

Our Strategic Plan focuses on delivering our core mission to contribute to society through excellence in education and excellence in research. Our ambition is to be acknowledged nationally and internationally as a leading research-intensive university and for our research to help improve people's lives in the UK and abroad.

We are also committed to delivering a transformational educational experience for our students informed by our research. We aim to support our students to fulfil their potential as individuals within our truly global community.
