The University of Worcester is committed to producing high quality and impactful research across each of its subject areas. We have a strong focus on applied research, reflecting the professional and practice-based strengths of several of our academic institutes, as well as fundamental research. We seek to continue to produce world-leading research with the aim for it to be recognised for being distinctive, socially and culturally relevant and influencing national agendas.
Central to this strategy is researcher development and a commitment to support and develop both student and staff researchers, through all stages of their careers.
The Research School has University-wide responsibility for researcher development for research students and for staff. This centralised provision is complemented by researcher development activities and events within our academic institutes as well as provision offered by other support departments, including Library Services, the Research Funding Office and Student Support.
