Graduate Research School
The Graduate Research School (GRS) provides an expert focal point for the support of all aspects of research activity throughout the University including:
- research funding and projects
- research degrees and examination
- policy and strategy
- research ethics and integrity
GRS provides support for academic and research staff at all stages of the pre and post-award process for external research funding from a variety of sponsors. We also manage the University’s internal research support funds and monitor their use and impact.
More about research funding
We support postgraduate research students and their supervisors from the initial application to completion stage. We offer research training to all of our postgraduate students studying research degrees and provide support for important aspects of research practice from induction through to examination.
More about research degrees
GRS advises staff and students on all policy, procedure and compliance issues with a commitment to maintaining high ethical standards of research integrity and conduct. We support university committees to ensure that all external quality expectations are met.
We create a culture and infrastructure within the University which is supportive of high quality research. We work closely with the research institutes to support and promote research across the university. We organise regular networking events for the research community to support coordinated activity across the institutes. GRS is also working closely with the institutes to support the coordination of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) preparations.
We also work closely with Library and Information Services to promote and support an institutional repository for research outputs, TeesRep, which allows access to a growing collection of peer-reviewed research and e-theses produced by the research community.
