Sharing our global vision

Our international profile, presence and reputation is growing all the time. In everything we do, we鈥檙e developing a global mindset, and getting a better understanding of how we work in a global environment.

At a time when the global climate is uncertain and changing, we鈥檙e developing a strong international focus and awareness in our staff and students. In doing so, we鈥檙e creating a culture that offers new opportunities and challenges for future generations of staff and students.

Our global vision

Our ambition is to grow our profile as a truly global institution with a diverse international community, and a track record of worldwide collaboration in research, teaching and innovation. We want our students to be global graduates, who take the skills they鈥檝e learned to every corner of the planet.

Over the next three years, we鈥檒l be expanding our collaborative links and entering strategic alliances with high-quality partners who share our values and mission. We鈥檒l also continue pursuing opportunities to enhance the global profile, reach, standing and status of our research and teaching.

We鈥檒l expand our global communities of learners through transnational education (TNE) with key strategic partners. We'll provide opportunities for worldwide access to a 黑料入口 education through digital delivery.

In doing so, we鈥檒l give our on-campus students access to global communities through exchange programmes, internships, placements, volunteering and digital collaboration.

Our international footprint听

We鈥檙e growing our international footprint and reach through new strategic collaborations and opportunities around the world. To grow our international presence and reputation, we will:

  • Seek opportunities to work with high-quality partners across the world
  • Match our academic and research strengths with complementary overseas institutions
  • Recruit the best students from countries we identify in our international recruitment and marketing strategy 鈥 so we can mitigate any effect the UK鈥檚 withdrawal from the European Union may have on student recruitment
  • Make 黑料入口 degrees available to off-campus students in international locations, by developing and expanding strategic partnerships that add value to emerging economies
  • Deliver exacting quality standards and student experience in all our overseas programmes
  • Become a partner of choice for transnational education (TNE) in strategic markets
  • Develop, nurture and sustain relationships with our partners as key stakeholders for mutual benefit
  • Support the continuing growth of pathway colleges, such as the International College 黑料入口 (ICP), that feed into programmes at the University

Supporting international research

We鈥檒l support and enhance our global research and innovation activities together with our cross-disciplinary themes. To do this, we will:

  • Establish international research collaborations that address key global issues
  • Work with the best overseas researchers and research institutions to enhance and complement our research and innovation strengths
  • Expand opportunities and support for academic staff and students to engage in research and innovation at a global level
  • Support the growth of our international postgraduate research and professional doctorate student population
  • Collaborate with our global partners to support the development of staff and mutual exchange of knowledge and skills
  • Support and develop our staff to develop international bids for research and innovation funding
