Our leadership, strategy and plans

Since 1952, the University of Hertfordshire has been powering the progress of our students, the community and industry by filling the skills gap with the talented graduates that businesses need, right on time. We’re ‘minding the gap’ right here in Hertfordshire!

Today, we welcome more than 30,000 students from over 140 countries to our seven Schools of Study, many with state-of-the-art facilities and academic staff sharing a wealth of lived experience. Our students are immersed in an environment enriched with world-class research, and a multitude of opportunities for unique engagement with business, industry and the public sector.

We value our memberships in the University Alliance (UA), the Hertfordshire Higher Education Consortium and Advance HE, which ensure that our curriculum delivers collaborative, real-world knowledge and insight. Vice-Chancellor Professor Quintin McKellar CBE currently serves as Vice-President (England and Northern Ireland) and a member of the Board of Universities UK (UUK).

Throughout our history, we’ve always appreciated the value of collaboration in delivering meaningful progress; it’s not just something we do, it’s who we are.
