Our four strategic areas

Strategic aims

This strategy aims to ensure that we become a world-class university with high levels of student engagement and satisfaction.

For 2015-2022 we are focusing on four key strategic areas:

  • Delivering transformative education requires us to ensure that all our students can reach their full potential. It requires us to work in partnership with them to develop and deliver an education that is responsive, responsible, imaginative and inspirational.
  • Developing world-leading research and enterprise requires us to create and apply knowledge that develops our disciplines, makes a positive contribution to society and the economy, and generates new sources of income to support our academic ambition.
  • Communication and collaboration requires us to place the University at the centre of the debate about the future of arts, design, fashion and communication and to improve the ways in which we engage with academic, cultural and business partners, both in the UK and across the world.
  • Building an inspirational environment requires us to have a world class physical environment and underlying infrastructure that supports our students and staff in their academic ambitions and increases our engagement with our wider communities.
