Our research encompasses a broad range of disciplines, focusing on aspects of life that affect us all. Over the last 20 years, we have invested heavily in growing our research activity and, as a result, have established Research Centres and inter-disciplinary Institutes that are at the heart of our research strategy.
As key generators of research enquiry and much of our outputs, they help to create an environment where scholars, students and our research collaborators have the freedom to explore ideas and make an impact through world-leading research.
All of our academic schools have areas of research strength, overseen by our established Research Institutes and Centres, many of which work closely with industry on large-scale projects.
