Re:shaping re:search — why join NTU?
With world-class facilities, dedicated doctoral support and a growing portfolio of interdisciplinary and collaborative research programmes — delivered alongside our worldwide family of academic and industry partners — NTU is the place to truly re:alise your potential.
As a recipient of the Queens Anniversary Prize — the most prestigious national award for research outputs — 90% of our work has been judged as ‘world-leading’, ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘internationally recognised’* Our goal is to maintain and further develop this reputation for research excellence by taking a themed approach to addressing the world’s most pressing problems — the key questions that span business, the arts, science, sustainability, healthcare, politics and the environment. We’ve called this new approach Re:search Re:imagined.
From addiction studies to heritage conservation and innovations in food production, our research community’s work is helping NTU to deliver on its boldest ambitions — to value ideas, create opportunities, embrace sustainability, empower people, enrich society and connect on a global scale. We believe in applied, impactful research that delivers better answers. By breaking down the financial barriers to PhD study, our fully funded studentships ensure you’ll have the freedom and the confidence to deliver the kind of research that truly matters.
