The Planning department’s role is to understand and appreciate the vision and strategic priorities of the School and to apply this to the provision of expert knowledge of external funding, business planning and the national policy environment.

The Planning department is part of the Finance Directorate and is led by the Head of Planning, Alison Hartrey. We are located on the first floor of Vernon Square in room V103.
