Research is an essential component of the School's activity and purpose. We believe that it is very important to invest in excellent postgraduate (PhD) training and research infrastructure, and to maintain an intellectually stimulating environment that supports high quality research. The School has a dynamic and vibrant research community of more than 140 PhD students
