Teaching and Learning Strategy

The delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes is the core activity of the University. It is advanced through the BUE Teaching and Learning Strategy.

The strategic objective for Teaching and Learning is:

to provide a high-quality British-style research-led learning experience which attracts students of outstanding potential and equips them with the capacity to undertake higher education and research, and the transferable skills and knowledge required by employers or to become the creators of new ventures.

Achieving this strategic objective involves:

  • Attracting high quality students with research–active academic staff capable of delivering UK higher education in accord with the British ethos and standards.
  • Developing effective, communicative and innovative teaching, and providing a learning environment (academic, pastoral and social) that stimulates our students to become independent learners realising their full academic potential.
  • Offering a portfolio of degree programmes providing knowledge and skills required for graduate employability, consistent with regional and international needs and the requirements of UK university validation.
  • Creating a student learning experience through BUE’s UK-style Library and IT infrastructure, complemented by implementation of Library, IT and eLearning strategies, as well as Learner Support, underpinned by Estates, Human Resources and financial planning.

As part of its remit the University Teaching and Learning Committee produces guidance to support programme teams in the delivery and enhancement of the Student Learning Experience. The guidance documents are intended as indicative frameworks to support the development of consistent practice across all programmes. 


The University Library supports delivery of effective Teaching and Learning. Students and staff have access to a state of the art library which offers a range of study options and provides an extensive range of services including eBooks, eJournals, Study Guides, Workshops, as well as information on Academic Honesty and Turnitin.
