Risk Appetite Statement

The University’s general approach is to limit its exposure to risk across all risk categories however there is an appetite to accept a higher degree of risk in pursuit of its key strategic objectives. The University follows a conservative approach to risks, except for areas such as Strategy, Research & Innovation, Teaching & Learning and International Development where a higher risk appetite is acceptable, subject to ensuring an understanding of the potential benefits and risks , in pursuit of key strategic objectives.

The University’s appetite for risk across a number of categories is outlined in the Risk Management policy.
