Leeds Trinity has a long history of research excellence in the
Theology and Religious Studies
. This is exemplified by the work of the
Leeds Centre for Victorian Studies (LCVS)
, which opened in 1994 and has gained an international reputation for research excellence. Research success has led to the development of the
MA Victorian Studies
which in turn has attracted
PhD students to the University.
In the longer term, beyond 2016, the University will pursue Research Degree Awarding Powers (RDAP) within the next five years to establish our independence, integrity and our reputation as a University where teaching and learning are led by research and where research activity is valued by staff and students.
The Research Office manages and supports research activities across the University. It oversees grant applications, internal funding schemes, the PURE system (the University's current research information system), biannual Research Day events, support for research assessment exercises, and postgraduate research student administration.
The Research team ensures that the LTU Research strategy protects and builds on areas of research excellence whilst encouraging the broadening of the research base into new areas of research activity. The Research Office team supports the academic staff and ensures that those that are keen to be more research active are not only encouraged but supported to be so. Our Research engenders staff enthusiasm, inspires learning and reinforces our University status.
The Research Team include:
Dr Martin Barwood
Director of Postgraduate Research
Dr John Rule
Research and Knowledge Exchange Officer
