The Faculty supports and hosts a large, interdisciplinary and international group of students. Our work is funded by external organisations including research councils (ESRC and AHRC), charities (such as Willen Hospice and World Vision), organisations (such as Leverhulme, the Globe Theatre and Public Health, England, Shell) and through a range of internal collaborations (faculty, Priority Research Area, LTI, CREET). We value partnership with organisations to develop future researchers and research informed practitioners.
