Research Office support

We provide support and guidance for our research community.

The University is home to a varied, vibrant and rapidly growing research community.

The Research Office provides central research support to our senior academics. We enable the delivery of impactful research.

The Office supports all academic staff in the University to operationalise research strategy and School research plans. We also run a University Research Committee, Research Ethics Committee and all associated committees and groups for the REF submission.

Support for academic staff

We recognise the development needs of staff vary depending on the stage of career and area of research. 

We offer training, resources and research grant application support.

Support for undergraduate research

We also support undergraduate research by running the Students as Researchers scheme. This is a paid opportunity to work alongside staff supervisors on exciting and varied research projects.

This year we have around 23 students working across 20 different projects.

The scheme includes networking events and a research showcase event towards the end of the academic year. Some participants in the scheme have their work published in respected academic journals and presented at external conferences as well as the Posters in Parliament exhibition.
