About the school
Our school has a broad and active research programme that both informs and enlightens our academic teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
We are based in the Social Sciences building which underwent a £8.5m reburbishment in 2014. This refurbishment has improved the facilities available to you and has enhanced the working and learning environment for staff and students.
Hosting a number of substantial and vibrant research centres, we received the second highest position in the country in terms of 'world-leading' research (4*) in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
