The Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research (BCMCR) is one of the University’s largest research centres. With 60 per cent of our research judged to be 'world leading' or of internationally excellent quality in the last Research Assessment Exercise 2008 (RAE 2008) we have established a reputation for quality and we plan to build on in the next Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). We are one of the universities that form the Midlands 3 Cities Doctoral Training Partnership alongside our partners; University of Birmingham, University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent, Leicester and De Montfort.

These pages are designed to explain research degrees and the specialisms of colleagues in the research centre. We hope this will help you to choose the right programme of study. If you have questions that are not answered here or further enquiries please do not hesitate to contact us.
