Centre for Research and Enterprise (CRE)

Our passion is to involve everyone in our community, both staff and students, in academic research. Our activities cover the working paper series, research seminar series, publications and research news. And all of these are overseen by key resource persons who are research active members of staff.

Working Paper Series
Launched in December 2015 the Working Paper Series is an in-house publication open to the general public. The series is multidisciplinary covering all areas of our degree subjects – business, management, law and accounting.

Research Seminar Series
Our Research Seminar Series is held regularly throughout the year (typically monthly), and offers a great opportunity for the exploration of new academic ideas.

Publications and Conference Papers
We are proud champions of research among our academics. All our research is carefully collated to be useful to our teachers – so that our students can quickly benefit from new insights.

Research News
And our dedicated news page offers all the latest insights from our members of staff.


We all know that entering the world of work is never easy, especially in today’s climate. We feel it our mission to not only prepare students for the workplace, but to help them achieve their career goals, and that’s why created our student focused Enterprise project.

Our main focus is employability skills – bringing together our staff’s professional experience to teach students real-life lessons. We also find and run relevant events to support this mission.

Our employability activities are run through SEWS (Student Engagement, Wellbeing and Success). Part of this work is delivered during class time and revolves around student’s Personal Development Plan (PDP), taught by our Course Leaders. Students can also visit us for one-to-ones with the centre’s Employability Advisor who can help make job applications, create CVs and prepare for interviews.
