The School of the Arts, English and Drama provides a dynamic, creative and technically supportive environment for postgraduate study. We offer a friendly and inclusive community with a proven record for publications of international excellence.

A unique range of research opportunities encompass art, design, history, theory, theatre, performance, post-medieval literature, publishing, linguistics studies, and creative writing, including theatre, fiction and poetry.

Our research includes conceptual research leading to published outcomes and applied research leading to industrial and commercial applications and/or professional and public commissions.

We are also committed to knowledge transfer and knowledge exchange projects. We use our research strengths to form links with the creative industries, developing the entrepreneurial side of our activities, and fostering a range of productive and effective knowledge transfer partnerships.

Our specialist researchers encompass a wide range of expertise, and the School achieved excellent results in the Research Excellence Framework 2014. Submitting to three different discipline panels, 71% of our research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent. The significance of our research can be seen not only through the 2014 REF results, but also through the impact it has on arts, culture and wider society as a whole.
