Our Strategy

Birmingham 2030 sets out our aspiration to establish Birmingham in the top 50 of the world’s leading universities. This is a highly-challenging ambition, and the Strategic Framework sets out the ways in which we will pursue this.

With world-class research and outstanding global education as our core mission, we will strive to increase the volume and quality of our research to make an even greater difference to the world around us. We will be the UK’s exemplary civic university, remaining firmly committed to our foundations in the highly diverse communities, people, and economy of the city of Birmingham and the West Midlands.
