About

We have had notable success recently both in engaging with our students and in supporting the universities ambitions, all whilst going through considerable change. The challenge is to now maintain the direction of travel and identify how to make the step change in the demonstrable impact that we have. Finally, we have to recognise the challenges that we currently face as an organisation to ensure this change is sustainable and that the organisation is well managed. In order to continue to deliver and ensure we make a real impact on the student experience we have to focus on being a strong and stable organisation.
