"At the University of Birmingham, world-class research and exceptional education takes place across the broadest possible range of disciplines. From the Arts and Humanities to Engineering, Life Sciences to the Social Sciences, this is an institution that has, for many years, educated the brightest students and whose researchers have provided the breakthroughs to address the great challenges of our time.
As Vice-Chancellor, I am determined to build on our well-established position as a top 100 global university to become one of the very best international centres of education and research. We have a bold strategy to take us to 2020, based on a clear vision to invest in intellectual talent to make a difference to our city, our region, our nation, and our world."
