Collaboration leads to inspiration

As a research student, you'll be part of a community of learning and discovery that stretches beyond our campus.

We've spent years developing links with partners in a wide range of fields, from industry to policymakers, social enterprises and charities. This means that our research is designed to be applied somewhere, and to solve problems or improve outcomes.

We're passionate in our commitment to social justice. Our work explores how to tackle inequality, deliver education that's more diverse and welcoming, and to address mental and emotional health.

We're not afraid to challenge how things are done. And we're always excited about working with others to create something new.
