Research, advanced scholarship and knowledge exchange are a fundamental part of life at Leeds Trinity University. We cultivate a research-led culture across all our course subject areas and research centres to enhance our students learning experience. To learn more about our research ambitions please see our new 2018-21 Research Strategy. The strategy is intended to consolidate the very substantial progress made over the last five years while aligning our research to the University's strengths and latest strategic plan. The four key objectives focus on our students, our staff, our university and our contribution to society.
