Research-led education: embedded in the University mission
‘… students benefit from – and want to be taught by – academics at the leading edge of their fields.
Thus high quality research-informed teaching is our aim.’

University of Exeter Strategic Plan 2011
Research Led Education
The notion of research-led education is integral to the University’s strategic vision as we approach the new, post-2012 era of higher education:
‘students benefit from – and want to be taught by – academics at the leading edge of their fields. Thus high quality research-informed teaching is our aim.’
Vice Chancellor Steve Smith, University’s 2011 Strategic Plan
The 2010-15 Education Strategy develops this theme:
As a leading research intensive university, we firmly believe in the central importance and value of research in enhancing the student learning experience. Through a research based curriculum, we provide our students with the opportunity to share the excitement of research and of extending the boundaries of knowledge. And through research inspired teaching and assessment, we encourage and enable our students to develop valuable skills of critical and independent enquiry. Research based teaching ultimately sustains the country’s intellectual and creative capital.
