Profile Description

NOTTINGHAM TRENT UNIVERSITY - INVESTING IN EXCELLENCE

Nottingham Trent University has an outstanding reputation for our commitment to research that shapes lives and society. 

School of Arts and Humanities

The School of Arts and Humanities invites applications from well qualified candidates who have, or expect to graduate with, good Masters level qualifications, to undertake doctoral studies in a range of the School's subject areas. Research in the School is rich and diverse; with staff conducting internationally recognised and world leading research.  In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, more than two-thirds of research was judged to be world-leading or internationally excellent.

Researchers in the School work in collaboration with a range of scholars from across the academic community in Britain and Ireland as well as in North America, continental Europe and the Far East. This has the benefit of creating a varied and informed research community with links throughout the world that enhance the experience of research staff and research students. This international perspective helps to attract research students from across the world.
