1. Foreword from our Vice-Chancellor

In 2019 we launched our University Strategy for 2019-25; since the launch, we have reviewed and redesigned many of our practices by building on our strengths and creating an inclusive and transformative environment to promote student success. The impact of this work is evident in our 2023 Silver TEF award and excellent student survey results.

This Student Success Strategy takes forward the frameworks for Careers, Transitions, Academic Professional Development and Education for Social Justice and extends our plans across a wider range of elements that contribute to Student Success from student support to, curriculum architecture, classroom technology, learning resources and academic operations such as timetabling.

I am delighted that so many people have contributed to these plans including our own students. I am also pleased to see the alignment with the strategies for Estates, People and Digital Transformation. This puts us in an excellent position to meet the ambitions of the 2025 Strategy and prepare us for the future.

Professor Lynn Dobbs,
Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive
