Your research degree programme will be supported by a number of people and departments across the University.
As a postgraduate research degree student at Birmingham City University, you will be a student of the Faculty in which your research study is focused, and your supervisory team is the primary point of contact for all academic issues. Academic and progression processes will be overseen and authorised by the Faculty Research Degrees and Environment Committee (FRDEC).
You will also be a member of the University’s Doctoral Research College (DRC). The DRC is an ‘umbrella’ team whose main focus is to administer, co-ordinate and oversee the full life cycle of the University’s research community of postgraduate research students. DRC staff work in partnership with Faculty-based staff (as well as the University’s other professional service providers) and are embedded within each faculty.
These pages provide greater detail and also means of contacting the Doctoral Research College staff who are here to help at all stages of your research degree journey.
Welcome to Birmingham City University and the start of your life as a postgraduate research student, a valued member of our growing research community. We recognise fully the commitment that you have made by choosing to study with us for a research degree, and we understand the support that you will need from our academic staff in faculties, our wider research community and our professional services teams to enable your success.
At Birmingham City University, we are committed to distinctive, original and rigorous research which discovers new knowledge and which delivers real-world benefits to society. Through your research and advanced practice you will discover new insights and know-how. By sharing your research outcomes effectively through publication, conference attendance and public engagement, your research could deliver meaningful societal, cultural and economic benefits on a local, national or even global scale. Increasingly our research findings are being applied by others to address national and global challenges, through interdisciplinary research teams and international collaborations.
The last UK-wide exercise to measure research quality, REF2014, judged 60 per cent of our research across 11 subject areas to be of ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ quality and our excellent Impact rating positioned us equal 55th in the Impact ranking table, demonstrating the real-world benefits of our research.
Our submission to REF2014 demonstrated how our research has been growing and included 40% more staff and 4 additional subjects compared to our submission to the previous RAE2008. Our submission to the upcoming 2021 Research Excellence framework, REF2021 will show a further increase in research coverage and staff engagement with research, increasing to 14 the subject submitted for assessment and doubling the number of research-active staff submitted, as more of our staff engage in impactful research of internationally recognised quality.
We are continuing our journey to improve still further the quality and impact of our research; to grow our research community and enhance our research culture. We summarise our research ambitions by the phrase “Better, Bigger, Broader, Bolder” and we look forward to the valuable contributions that you will make.
We hope that you will enjoy being a part of our vibrant and expanding research community and find your research degree programme to be a rewarding and challenging experience. In addition to gaining a much deeper understanding of your chosen subject area and discovering new knowledge, you will also develop a wide range of skills that will set you up for your professional life after your PhD.
Please take the time to read the information in these Welcome pages, and the links therein, as it will help you settle in to the University more efficiently. We wish you the very best of luck with your coming studies.
