About us

The Faculty Graduate School represents a hub for the postgraduate research training and supervisory expertise across Business, Law and Art disciplines. The Faculty environment includes around 290 academic staff from Southampton Business School (SBS), Southampton Law School (SLS) and Winchester School of Art (WSA). Doctoral Students benefit from being in a Faculty that hosts 14 Research Centres sitting across three schools, including interdisciplinary Research Centres linking to other Faculties e.g. Centre of Operational Research, Management Sciences and Information systems (CORMSIS). The Faculty environment is enriched by strong involvement with the Web Science Institute and its EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training, Southampton Maritime and Marine Institute, Institute for Criminal Justice and Global Health Research Institute.

The Faculty Graduate School provides students with a vibrant and diverse research environment of the highest quality. This is evidenced by REF 2014 units of assessment for Art and Design ranked top 6 in the UK for research output quality. The research environment for both Business and Management Studies, and Law was ranked as 100% world leading or internationally excellent. This high quality research environment provides Doctoral Students with access to a pool of academics working at the highest level in the research student’s chosen field, and well equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to support research students in working towards the successful completion of their research programmes.
