While the Principal personally believed that the University had never been in a stronger position, both academically and financially, the key to maintaining and improving that position was achievement of an even greater surplus in the coming years.

The University was therefore holding discussions at senior management level with the University of the Highlands and Islands Millennium Institute, SAC and The Robert Gordon University, with a view to forming alliances where these were considered to be clearly to the benefit of the University.
