Strategic objectives and vision

Following six months of engagement with students, staff and external organisations, our University has announced its new vision.

Driven by our new Vice-Chancellor, Professor Helen Marshall, this vision explains what we want to be, how and why.

The new vision will enable us to create something special and unique. But like all visions, it is something we aspire to be over the next five to 10 years. It won’t happen overnight and there will be many challenges but it captures something special about us. Here it is.

"By pioneering exceptional industry partnerships we will lead the way in real world experiences preparing students for life."
