Education and students sub-strategy

The Way Forward 2018-23 is currently undergoing a strategic review. These pages will be updated in the autumn.

We are committed to ensuring an educationally outstanding and consistently high quality student experience, driven by creativity and curiosity, with excellent teaching and services to enhance learning and support student life.

We will continue to attract well-qualified and highly motivated undergraduate, postgraduate taught and research students, who will benefit from and contribute to our excellent research culture, and become part of our global alumni community.

We will build on our strong track record in widening participation to ensure we promote higher education for the benefit of all. We will work in partnership with our students to take them on an inspiring educational journey that will enrich their lives, preparing them for leadership and the world of work, and enable them to participate fully in society.

Building on the previous strategy

We will consolidate our strategy to ensure that all our students benefit from being in a research-rich educational environment, building on our successful programmes to engage students in our research, innovation and engagement activities. We will continue with our work to encourage widening participation and to support vulnerable student groups.

Our projects to transform and develop our learning and teaching spaces will ensure our campus and facilities are student focussed and able to support collaborative, flexible, digital and independent learning.  We will build on our investments in learning, teaching and the wider student experience, as key foundations of an educationally excellent offer for all our students.
