Strategic plan 2021-2028
As we approach our 200th anniversary in 2028, it’s the perfect time to revisit, refine and reaffirm our mission and strategy.
We have a long and successful history of giving our students an outstanding higher education experience, enriched by real-world, practical learning opportunities and our second-to-none support services. We’re proud to offer these life-changing opportunities to everyone who can benefit from them, whatever their background or their personal circumstances.
We transform lives by delivering an outstanding educational experience, creating prosperity and opportunity in the communities we serve.
To be recognised as a leading UK university, with national and international influence, delivering real-world, practice-based education from our Preston, Burnley, Blackburn (Training 2000), West Cumbria, and Cyprus campuses.
Our extensive curriculum offer, from the arts and sciences to medicine and engineering, is research informed and employer engaged. So, our students are assured of the highest quality learning experience and the best possible outcomes.
Our values reflect who we are as a university and what we stand for. They define the things that are most important to us and nurture a sense of shared purpose. They reflect our ambitious nature, inspire us to constantly improve and to enrich the lives of our students, our colleagues and the communities we serve.
Looking further ahead
In an ever more competitive world, we must never become complacent in striving for our ambitions. The success of our strategy depends on innovation and continuous improvement to 2028 and beyond, so our KPIs will be monitored and reported on annually. In three years, we’ll review this plan against what we have achieved and if we need to adapt, we will, to maximise our opportunities for success by 2028.
