Research Support for Arts and Social Sciences

The Faculty  has a number of programmes for supporting the research of its staff and postgraduate students.  The purpose of these programmes is to enable individuals to expand and enrich their research expertise, to develop their careers and to form potentially collaborative links with other researchers across campus.   A selection of programmes is given below.  Full details of the programmes and workshops available to research students are on a dedicated page.





Practice-based Phd Training Programme

This programme is open to all arts and humanities PhD students engaged in practice-based research, and brings them together to gain from the experience of encountering interdisciplinary peers.The six workshops and  fortnightly seminar series explore and discuss topics and issues rather than focusing on  ‘delivering skills’, and are led by clusters of academics/practitioners. If you wish to participate in the programme please email the Faculty Manager.

The full programme is available on the Practice-based PhD Programme web page. 



OnTrack for Researchers



The On Track programme is aimed at developing research expertise and research profiles, especially of early-and mid-career researchers. The programme consists of a series of workshops, some of which are tailored to specific disciplines, led by experienced academics from the College as well as external facilitators.  In  the Arts and Social Sciences, the programme is supplemented by a mentoring scheme for early-career researchers where they are matched with  a senior member of staff in another Faculty department,

The full programme is available under 'Research' on the Staff Development web pages.
