We see research as essential to our mission: as underpinning both our learning and teaching and our knowledge transfer and enterprise activities.
Research at the University of Worcester
The University of Worcester is committed to producing high quality research with impact across all its subject areas. We expect and support our academic staff to engage in research and knowledge transfer. At the same time, we wish to develop and enhance areas of national and international excellence through our Research Centres and Groups.
The University has a strong focus on applied research, reflecting the professional and practice-based strengths of several of our academic Institutes and Research Centres; research which, through its application, will have significant impacts on the practice of teachers, health professionals, coaches, managers and artists. We are also focused, however, on fundamental research, in areas like Biochemistry, Biology, English Literature, Geography and History, though in these areas too we encourage work which will benefit economy, society, and culture.
We are committed to bringing our research expertise to businesses and other organisations. Our academics provide specialist consultancy in a wide range of areas from environmental consultancy to sport therapy; from forensic biology to management development. More details of our specialisms can be found on our Consultancy pages.
