University Annual Plan 2019/20 

Our University Annual Plan 2019/20​ shows how the University will continue, over this academic year, to deliver the objectives set out in our Strategy 2020.

Our top priorities for this year, as highlighted in the plan, are:


·         We will increase our proportion of MD20 entrants to 13% and improve retention of these students to at least 90%


·         We will grow our taught and research student population, through the provision of attractive demand-led programmes, quality teaching and excellent support


·         We will strengthen the student voice and Edinburgh Napier community, building pride and confidence in everyone


·         We will launch a Student Centre on each campus to increase awareness and access to our student support services to ensure our students are well supported and have an enhanced student experience


·         We will continue to enhance our teaching quality for students by embracing new and innovative approaches to learning and teaching through the provision of tailored support for all teaching staff, including peer review


·         We will see an increase in the number of students accessing Student Futures services and the number of high-quality work placements offered


·         We will increase on-campus international students and the contribution from TNE and Online provision, through new programme development and effective management of strategic partnership


·         We will be recognised as a great place to work, with an employee engagement score of at least 80%


·         We will produce excellent REF submissions, optimised through increased growth in the proportion of staff holding externally funded income, increasing volume and quality of research outputs, intensity and impact


·         We will increase our external profile through engagement with local and national business, developing a focussed approach to growing income from knowledge exchange



Beyond these, the plan is then structured into commitments and actions aligned to our four strategic objectives:


·         Grow our academic reputation

·         Deliver an excellent personalised student experience

·         Build innovation, enterprise and citizenship

·         Internationalise our work


Our Key Performance Indicators have also been updated to reflect our targets for this academic year.
