All academic members of staff receive a generous conference allowance. Doctoral students presenting papers at conferences receive an automatic funding allowance. In recent years, the Department raised over £30K of internal funding from the College's Research Strategy Fund. Our four research units have devolved budgets from the Department (overseen by the Research Committee and HoD) to assist with research activity such as workshops, conferences, visiting speaker series and research tasks such as editorial assistance for the four journals partly edited by staff in the Department.
The Department has world-class ICT equipment. All new members of staff are provided with a new computer and customised software. Potable laptops and mini data projectors for staff and research student use are also available through the Department.
