Exeter Q-Step Centre brings together international research-focused social scientists with an interest on a growing number of topics such as media, climate change, migration, terrorism, political representation, electoral competition and social media.

Our approach to research is interdisciplinary and cooperative across the University. Currently, the Q-Step Centre academics lead on a number of research projects and links with other Colleges have resulted in joint research with CEMPS (ExpoNet) and CLES (VoteAdvice). 

Q-Step interdisciplinary research activity also offers an opportunity for our students to learn-by-observing real data analysis and to get involved in cutting-edge research.
