What our priorities are and how we are doing

The University publishes a wide range of information relating to its strategies and plans, performance indicators, audits, inspections and reviews.

This includes the University's Strategy, our Annual reports for the Central University and that of the School of Advanced study (Annual report and Strategic plan).  

Within the governance structure of the University it is the Collegiate Council, chaired by the Vice Chancellor and comprising the 17 Heads of College and the Dean of the School of Advanced Study, which has responsibility, on behalf of the Board of Trustees, for the determination of academic strategy and policy and for  the discharge of academic affairs. Collegiate Council is supported in this by the Academic Quality Advisory Committee (AQAC), which undertakes and submits to the Council the annual University Quality Overview Report. The Committee also promotes quality enhancement and shares good academic practice across the University. To find out more view our academic quality pages.
