The Way Forward

03 June 2013

The Way Forward

The Way Forward is intended as an accessible, concise guide to understand the strategic direction of Cardiff University. Our ambition is to rank consistently among the top 100 universities in the world and the top 20 in Britain. In doing that we will focus our energy on four key areas: research, education, internationalisation and engagement.
Concentrating on these priority areas will not only help put us ahead of our competitors, but will allow everybody who works or studies at the University, or who supports us, to decide how they can best contribute to our success.

The Way Forward also sets out guiding principles for the way we put these ambitions into practice, and includes ten performance indicators that will help us gauge our progress.

I hope you find it useful and any feedback is welcome.

Professor Colin Riordan
