A guiding principle for the 2021 T&L Strategic Plan is that our activities all contribute to the delivery of a high-quality and distinctive academic portfolio. We seek to ensure that our planned activities contribute to the attractiveness of our programs in terms of curriculum, accessibility, industry engagement and practicality and, underpinning these dimensions must always be quality.
