Speaking to the meeting of University Court, Dr Grant said: "Although the past twelve months have been rich in achievements, honours and recognition for Cardiff University - I have to report that Higher Education in Wales and across the UK is in a period of unprecedented and in some ways unpredictable change.
"Despite these challenges, as Vice-Chancellor, I have a duty to help maintain momentum, morale and ambition for sustaining the success of Cardiff University. In describing some of the highlights of the past year, I hope you will agree that our achievements give Cardiff an opportunity to weather the storms.
"I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to Cardiff’s success – our staff, students and supporters. In today’s challenging economic environment, I remain confident that your talent and enthusiasm will stand us in good stead to meet the opportunities of the future."
