School policy is that all academic staff should enhance their expertise through scholarly activities which may include personal research, consultancy and staff development.
The publication of periodical articles, monographs, and participation at conferences and seminars is expected. Resources are available to support these activities. The School is seeking to develop European links and professional interaction with national and international organisations. The School also supports higher degrees by research.
Since 1992, the number of research students in the School has increased year on year, currently supporting in excess of fifty varing from full-time to part time, and from all courners of the world. All research students have their own networked computer facilities.
