The School of English has developed research partnerships and opportunities with many international organisations including the South African Holocaust and Genocide Foundation,  the Institute for Environmental Research and Development, Nigeria, the Laboratory of Kinetic Objects, Cape Town and the Anne Frank House, Amsterdam.

Recent collaborations include: a large-scale project with Visit Greenland exploring sustainable tourism in the Arctic regions; and an ongoing partnership with a wide variety of community groups in a deprived part of Uganda exploring how theatrical methods can help foster improved intergenerational and gender relations, leading to better quality of life for local people.
