Research Excellence

  • Research with Real-world Impact

    The University encourages and develops research activity across a wide range of disciplines and is widely recognised for its high quality work in subjects ranging from accountancy and European studies to environmental research and physics.

    Research and knowledge exchange

    The University prides itself in having a long standing tradition of industrial partnership and contribution to human knowledge. We endeavour to help industry, commerce and the public sector benefit from the University's research expertise, either through collaboration or the transfer of our knowledge via various initiatives, consultancy, and licensing.

    The University’s Research Services and Enterprise Services are the first point of contact for external bodies who wish to access the wide range of skills and facilities that are available in our institution. Research Services and Enterprise Services are responsible for all contractual arrangements and agreements with companies in relation to research and commercial services. All contracts, licence arrangements and non-disclosure agreements are negotiated and issued by Research Services and Enterprise Services.
