NUA Strategic Plan
The University’s strategic plan is scheduled for evaluation and updating in 2019. Mindful of the several uncertainties associated with forward planning, and in particular associated with Brexit and the review of funding of tertiary education, the University Council decided in Autumn 2018 to await the outcomes of these matters before a major update is initiated.
Access & Participation Plans
The University’s Access & Participation Plan (called the Access Agreement up to and including 2018-19) sets out our commitments to ensure fair access and student success for students from under-represented backgrounds, through outreach work, financial and other kinds of student support.
The Access & Participation Plan and Access Agreements from the past few years are included below. The agreement that applies to a particular student will be the one for the year in which s/he first entered NUA. For instance, students who entered NUA in 2017/18 should refer to the 2017/18 Access Agreement.
