Learn more about our upcoming Strategy
"Oxford Brookes is one of the UK's top modern universities with a global reputation for excellence in teaching and research. We enjoy strong links with business and industry and make a vital contribution to the economy and to society at large.
We continually seek to drive the quality of our teaching, research and other activities; this ambition is at the heart of our Strategy 2020 which has provided high level direction for the University over the past decade. We are now working to produce an updated strategy to ensure that this ambition and excellence continues to thrive in the years ahead, acknowledging the real opportunities- and challenges- of the world around us.
Work to develop our new University Strategy is being led by the University Strategy Group. We are keen that our students, staff and the wider Oxford Brookes community can feed into the developing strategy and contribute to the process; please continue to check this page for details of forthcoming events."
Our current strategy is taking us forward to 2020, building on our strong track record for quality teaching, learning and research. Our new University Strategy will supersede the Strategy 2020 document which has provided high level direction for the University over the past decade.
A new group established to develop our new University Strategy
The University Strategy Group met for the first time in February 2019 and has since been undertaking a series of tasks to support the development of our new University Strategy. The Group meets monthly and is constituted of the 10 members of the Vice-Chancellor’s Group with the addition of the Academic Registrar and Director of Academic and Student Administration, and two link Governors. Its first activity was to examine the context for the new Strategy, including Brookes’ current strengths and weaknesses, the competitive environment and future developments such as the digital agenda and its regional, national and international positioning.
This work resulted in the group initially focusing on two areas:
Since then, the Group has been working hard to provide opportunities for Oxford Brookes staff, students and key local, national and international partners to feed into the emerging Strategy.

Work on our new University Strategy formally kicked off in early 2019
This is an important piece of work which will set the University’s direction and approach for the next 15 years. We are keen that our students, staff and the wider Oxford Brookes community have an opportunity to feed into the developing strategy. A series of events for staff to contribute their views took place in Autumn 2019. Staff can access lecture capture and documents relating to these events from this Googlesite.
The new University Strategy will formally launch in Summer 2020. It will be fully implemented across the University from September 2020.
