A community-wide consultation on our next 5 years - UCL’s staff, students, alumni and key partners are invited to join the conversation to develop UCL’s strategic plan for the next five years.

Our strategic plan will set out our whole-university priorities, focusing effort and investment on a small number of shared priorities. The plan aims to build on the trajectory established by UCL 2034, our 20-year strategy, and our ambition to be London’s global university.
