Our strategy, vision and culture

Transforming lives, powering potential. Welcome to the University of Hertfordshire.

At the University of Hertfordshire, our vision is to transform lives. This means whatever someone’s background, wherever they’re from, we will drive their potential and power them to succeed. We are committed to having a positive transformational impact on every member of our university community, and to sharing our successes with the community around us.

We’re so inspired that over a third of our students report they are first in their family to attend university. 70.4% of our graduates are in highly skilled jobs within 15 months of finishing their studies​. And our most recent pulse survey showed that 80% of our staff are proud to work at Herts.

Throughout our 70-year history we have supported a truly diverse range of students, staff, businesses, researchers and members of the local community to identify their goals and reach their highest aspirations, providing a huge range of flexible opportunities to explore—and to soar!
