Oxford Brookes University (OBU) was established over 150 years ago. OBU engages with excellent teaching and research, and has a strong reputation at local, national and international level. The University is committed to delivering an outstanding student experience by providing the highest standards of learning and teaching, and actively involving students in shaping their futures. At OBU research is impactful, world-leading and touches people’s lives in so many ways. OBU research is making a tangible difference to communities locally, nationally and internationally, tackling some of the world’s biggest problems.

This project sits in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences (FHLS), and specifically, in the Department of Psychology, Health & Professional Development. Staff work with health and education professionals as well as partners in industry to develop knowledge and understanding that informs policy and improves people’s lives. Much of the research is multi- or inter-disciplinary and they also undertake work with real world impact, as it is done by the “Migration and Refugee Research Network”, a newly established cross Faculty interdisciplinary research network at OBU.
