UWS has six academic schools, four campuses across the west of Scotland and one in London, and a network of research institutes. While our work covers an enormous breadth of interests, our activities fall into three key strategic areas of Health, Society and Sustainability. Across these themes, the majority of our activities fall into multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary working.
Although we classify our research into the three themes (Health, Society and Sustainability), the actual research is undertaken buy academics staff across our subject areas. The collaborative nature of our research means that many subject research grouping will work together to produce results within a theme. Our research subject areas are outlined below.
