Cardiff University

Cardiff University is home to a large and wide-ranging social science community. Specifically, we have more than 788 academics working in the social sciences at Cardiff, and currently host 268 social science PhD students. Two-thirds of the academics schools have received ESRC funding over the last five years. This is testimony to the extent to which social sciences are embedded across the university, and to the interdisciplinary nature of social sciences research at Cardiff University.
