University strategy 2019-28

Priority 2: Knowledge

The purpose of the University, as defined in our University Charter, is ‘the advancement of learning and knowledge by teaching and research and for enabling students to obtain the advantages of University education.’

Our mission of excellence in education and research is built on the creation, communication, transfer and application of knowledge, ideas and innovation, in our curricula, in our research and in our ways of working, within and across our campus communities and with our global, national and regional partners.
