The level of underpinning fundamental research completed continues to grow, with 128 PhD students being funded by the Trust since 2001. This adds to the overall total of more than 300 PhDs now completed or active across the BRE Trust University Partners. This critical mass of activity has attracted the best staff and students, resulting in exceptional results from the 2017 Research Excellence Framework.
In the year of 2017, four studentships were completed and five more initiated, bringing the total of active studentships to 22 at the year end.
