The Graduate Research School (GRS) provides central support for research funding and project development, research degrees, research governance and research policy and strategy. Our goal is to ensure the sustainability of areas of established and emerging research activity and we aim to create a culture and infrastructure within the Universtity which supports and nurtures high quality research.

GRS works closely with the five Research Institutes to promote research across the University and to support the coordination of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) submission. We coordinate networking events and research information events to exchange knowledge and to support creative conversations across different disciplines. GRS offers training for postgraduate research students on important aspects of research practice at different stages of their research degree. We also provide courses for researcher development which includes PhD supervisor training, research ethics and integrity as well as research leadership.

We support our researchers most significantly by coordinating University-funded Doctoral Scholarships, and project start-up funding through the University Research Fund. Research collaboration with private and public sector partners, nationally and internationally, are supported in a number of ways, including through the International Visiting Academic Scheme.


TeesRep is the institutional research repository for Teesside University, and is administered by the Library & Information Services.

It is an open access digital archive of research outputs, set up to collect, preserve and disseminate the University’s research. TeesRep gives you access to a growing collection of peer-reviewed research and e-theses produced by Teesside University researchers. It makes research accessible without the constraints of subscriptions or registrations and is part of a network of over 200 repositories in the United Kingdom and 2000 repositories worldwide.

TeesRep includes a mixture of full-text items and metadata only records including journal articles, books, book chapters, conference papers and PhD theses. It will support the Research Excellence Framework by providing an accurate record of publications.

Academic librarians from the Learning & Research Support team provide advice on study skills, information and research needs. They meet with new researchers to help familiarise them with the resources available in their subject area. Researchers have access to over 100 online databases, over 90,000 journal and conference proceedings titles, in print and electronic format, over 50,000 electronic books and over 285,000 books in the print collection. In addition researchers can obtain books and articles from the British Library’s Inter Library Loans Service or join the national SCONUL Access service to access print resources in other UK university libraries.
