Research Opportunities

The wide range of research activities in the Faculty, together with the mix of academic staff, post-doctoral research fellows and visiting professors, allows us to offer a stimulating and diverse Postgraduate environment.

Research is mainly carried out at our many research centres or groups based within the Faculty. Most of our academic staff belong to 1 or more of these and research students can expect to join a small team working on particular problems.
