Investing in our future

Resource management

Deploy resources to maximise the impact of our research, deliver an excellent education and provide value for money.


As stewards of limited resources, we need to fulfil our academic mission in the best interests of students and taxpayers.

Financial resilience

Balance our revenue between regulated and unregulated sources, including: postgraduate programmes; international student recruitment; philanthropy; and commercial income.


We must be financially resilient, within the challenging operating environment, to generate the resources we need to invest in transformational infrastructure and achieve our academic ambition.

Financial sustainability

The University remains financially sustainable in the long-term so that it can continue to invest in the people and facilities to deliver world leading research and education.


We must take decisions today which provide the University with the resources we need to fulfil our academic ambitions for many years to come.
