Research centres and institutes

Our research centres are externally funded through major research grants, strategic funding or local partnerships. All conduct internationally recognised research and many of them also provide postgraduate programmes and research supervision, allowing students to work closely with staff in these specialist areas. The centres run their own programmes of seminars, conferences and workshops.

Research groups pull together members of staff and postgraduate students who share common research interests and allow a flexible way to explore different themes.
