  • building on our financial strength and increasing the contribution to income that comes from research and commercial activities
  • ensuring every student takes part in career enhancing activities, such as placements, exchanges, enterprise, volunteering or work-based learning
  • establishing nationally and internationally recognised cross-discipline thematic areas that address key issues facing society
  • creating a network of strategic global partnerships to support internationalisation
  • raising expectations and creating ladders of opportunity for people in our region to take part in higher education
  • supporting and developing our people to deliver excellence with commitment and passion
  • developing a flexible physical and digital environment that promotes enjoyment and engagement within a community of learning and discovery
  • being a proud part of Portsmouth and our region, working in partnership to support and influence the economic, educational, social and cultural life of the city

A new University Strategy is currently being developed following our consultation with students, staff and governors, through the Shaping our Future conversation and will be available shortly.
