Our Priorities

Our priorities for support and engagement encapsulate what we believe to be the core spirit of the University. These priorities not only reflect the strategic aims of the University, but will also direct our fundraising requirements for research, capital projects and scholarships.

Our priorities for support and engagement are defined by the following themes:

  • Global Access to Education
  • Public Engagement
  • Internationalisation
  • Interdisciplinarity
  • Digital Scholarship

Our mission is to enable access to our world-class research and education. The University of London holds a unique position at the interface of teaching, research, policy and public engagement across the UK and internationally.

Our world-renowned Institutes are at the core of our academic mission. Collectively part of the School of Advanced Study (SAS), our Institutes possess  enormous strength in their individuality and dynamism.

SAS is the country’s only national co-ordinating centre for the humanities and is a multi-disciplinary hub, driving a wide range of developments and initiatives to promote and facilitate research, in the UK and globally.

We aim to build and enhance the public profile of UK humanities research, as well as ensuring that everyone can access our unique collections, the information contained in our libraries and participate in our events.

Our network of fellows, students, alumni and friends is central to our global reach and outlook, and act as ambassadors for the University of London, linking us to an international audience.

Our Institutes take the lead in innovative collaborations and networks, promoting interdisciplinarity and creating exceptional work at the interface of traditional disciplines.

At the forefront of advances in research, we continue to champion and drive the development of digital scholarship. We are digitising much of our work and collections to allow greater access to our resources. We will continue to explore and promote digital approaches to research, publication and education to meet the challenges of the future.

As pioneers in education, we will ensure the growth and inclusiveness of our uniquely flexible education. We will expand our scholarship programmes and collaborative partnerships within the University and beyond for the benefit of our students, scholars, their communities and society.
