We are the UK's most research-intensive modern university. Research is a fundamental part of our activities and core to what makes us a centre of academic excellence.
Research allows us to address important questions of national and global importance and to have significant academic, economic, societal and cultural impact. It also informs and underpins our teaching, helping to produce skilled, confident and successful graduates; and it underpins our enterprise activity, supporting the development of innovative partnerships.
We support all new researchers in their career development and aim to provide an environment that stimulates research excellence and our modern research facilities make this a stimulating environment to work and study in.
