Ambition
Ambition
“To be firmly established in the
top 10 UK universities by 2020”
In practice this means being positioned 4th –
9th every year in all the major league tables.
Significant improvements in league table rank have contributed to an enhanced reputation
but there is still more to do ….
Who do we compare ourselves with?
Drawing from our strategy, we have established a set of key performance
indicators (KPIs) that help direct our investments and measure our progress.
We evaluate our performance with reference to a peer group of 10 UK universities
who we are competing with as a Top 10 UK University:
• Bath
• Loughborough
• Bristol
• St Andrews
• Durham
• Warwick
• Edinburgh
• York
• Lancaster
• University College London
Target is to be
ranked at least
4th within this
group – that
will ensure
we’re firmly in
top 10 overall

Sustainability Challenge
“To be firmly established in the
top 10 UK universities by 2020”
In practice this means being positioned 4th –
9th every year in all the major league tables.
However, we are only JUST in the top 10 and it’s
going to be a major challenge to stay there …
The Sustaining top 10 Challenge …
• REF – high weighting (but already determined)
• NSS – high weighting
• Employability – increasing focus on student’s
return on investment (higher future weighting?)
• Tariff – strong correlation (0.8 – 0.9) with
completion, achievement & employability

Sustaining Top 10 Challenge: Entry Standards
• We are still 40 points behind the leading pack, and
• Tariff fell this year for the second year running
• But not sure about the others at this stage ….
The Size Challenge …
In relation to student growth, Council
have asked VCEG to consider
“the … tipping point at which quality
would be affected” so ….
We’ve looked at the Size Challenge:
How fast have we grown?
22,000
Total Student FTE
20,000
18,000
16,000
This represents growth of
82% which is the highest in
the RG. The second highest
is Queen Mary with 73% and
third, York with 57%.
14,000
12,000
Student FTE
Standard Target
10,000
Stretch Target
8,000
Why have we grown so fast?
– To pay our bills: cost inflation has outstripped growth in the Unit of T Resource for many years
– It has part-funded our investment to grow research ‘power’ & capital
– The demand has been high from good students
However …
• Despite reaching almost 21,000 by 2016/17,
using standard intake targets, some growth
(UEMS, BUS, & possibly Law) is not included
• Infrastructure is already struggling to
accommodate all students and staff
• And Council is concerned about quality, so ….

Tariff Eligible Intake Population
• None among the top 10 had an average intake of more than 3,500 in 2011/12
• There’s a finite pool of high quality students so the higher the intake, the greater the
pressure on tariff.
• Softening this year has made only marginal difference to tariff, but even before softening
our tariff was behind Durham, Warwick, St Andrew’s and UCL’s in 2011/12

The Finance Challenge …
“Funding our growth plans has to
be one of, if not the biggest
challenge that we face.”
Vice Chancellor’s report from the VCEG
Residential Meeting 2013
Finance Challenge
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Cost of investment in REF, NSS & employability
Capex too low in later years (£3m vs £67M)
Long-term maintenance + increased debt servicing
Surpluses too low (0.2% - 3.1%)
Pay inflation vs flat fees for home/EU UGs
Dramatically increasing pension costs
Examine baseline budgets to reduce costs
= EBITDA increase to 12.5%, or £12M by 2017/18

Shape Challenge:
Can we combine this with modest growth in home/EU
students in high margin areas?
• Current growth takes
us to a little over
21,000
• Room for small
amount of growth
within the cap of
22,000
• Look to high margin
areas, such as …
•
•
•
•
•
•
BUS School (Penryn?)
Law?
Mathematics?
Computer Science?
Modern Languages?
English?
But any growth would need to enhance our quality metrics
and would depend on market demand ….

Priorities
Key Performance Targets
• Enhance tariff and NSS – major
priorities over the next planning
period.
• Boost employability – major
theme for this year’s planning
round – may need investment.
• DVCs & COO to review all baseline
budgets.
• Modest additional expansion of
high margin home/EU provision,
bearing in mind the need to
protect our quality metrics.
• Reduce the number of universityfunded PGRs, where appropriate .
• Cap growth at 22,000 students in
total in the foreseeable future.
• Home/EU undergraduate intake
not to exceed 4,600.
• EBITDA of 12.5% of total income
by 2017/18.
• International student population
to remain at 18% (excluding INTO).
• All non-regulated fees remain in
the top decile.
