The School prepares five year strategic plans to feed into the University’s annual Planning Round each autumn. The planning submission sets out the School’s objectives, taking into consideration such matters as International Strategy, Value for Money, Carbon & Sustainability, IT Systems & Strategy and Capital Planning. Forecasts are also made regarding likely levels of research funding, student numbers, student fees, strategic reserves and all other sources of income, to produce financial plans covering the five year period. The School’s annual Planning Away Day is arranged to coincide with start of the process each July.
The University's Planning page contains helpful links to the Planning Round.
