Our Research

The breadth of our expertise in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences creates exciting opportunities for genuinely original, innovative research that brings together diverse disciplines to make a positive impact on the world.

Our Schools and Departments provide a focus for world leading subject specialism, while the University's institutes, research centres and groups catalyse cross-cutting research.

Many of our teams ranked highly against other UK institutions in REF2021, including Modern Languages Linguistics, Business and Management, Communication and Media Studies, and Law.

To maintain and nurture our research environment, the University and Faculty provide a range of support for academic colleagues, including our Early Career Researchers’ Network, support for PGRs, the Research Staff Association, and The Academy.

We also help our colleagues maximise their research income through bespoke support for externally and internally funded grants and fellowships, plus internal pump priming funds.

We consistently share our knowledge and resources with a wide range of partners. This spirit of cooperation, our ambitious development plans and the research facilities we have make us an excellent place to pursue research.

Colleagues can also find more information and support on the Research & Impact intranet.
