Organisations can utilise an academic's knowledge or, where appropriate, allow a masters student to act as a consultant on a specific project, as part of their studies.
The quality of our research was recognised in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in two units of assessment - Business and Management (Unit 36) and Communications, Media and Cultural Studies (Unit 66), the latter incorporating our research on public relations. The proportion of our research rated as international standard reflects the strengths in our research-active staff and the commendation for the scale of our research income generation reflects the scale of applied research and consultancy work in our research centres.
