Following a detailed review process over the 2022/23 and 2023/24 academic years, the University Council approved a recommendation at its meeting in November 2023 formally to disband the University Court.

This decision was reported to the Court at its last Annual Meeting in December 2023 and going forward the Directors of External Relations and of Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni will be leading on new forms of engagement and interaction with the individuals who were members of the Court at the time of its dissolution and will be designated Honorary Advocates of the University.
