During 2013-2014, we continued to expand our academic provision in science, health and medicine. We now offer five Masters degrees in surgery and a brand new undergraduate degree in Paramedic Science.
In Cambridge, our new super laboratory is one of the key attractions which has seen a surge of interest in life sciences courses.
In Chelmsford we'll be introducing innovative health-related full-time degrees which the NHS tells us it needs. We also plan to develop our existing provision in law and engineering, and we'll continue to offer academic study in accounting.
We've made progress with our MedTech Campus in partnership with Chelmsford, Harlow and Southend councils. In addition, we launched our Assisted Living Accelerator which we hope will help local authorities to deliver social care to an increasing number of people with an increasing set of needs at a reduced budget.
We continue to seek further efficiencies, not only in the way in which we organise and manage ourselves but also in our academic programme and in the means by which we monitor and control academic quality. To that end we have made a major capital investment in IT systems and are busy implementing a new student record system.
