    Institute for Transport Studies
    The Institute for Transport Studies is the largest single academic group involved in transport teaching and research in the UK. It acts as a focus for the transport research interests of a range of departments across the University. It is particularly linked with the School of Civil Engineering and the Leeds University Business School, with both of which it co-ordinates postgraduate programmes, and with the Schools of Computing, Geography, Psychology and Environment.

    A notable characteristic of the work of the Institute is the close and successful working arrangements achieved between a wide range of disciplines, including economics, civil engineering, urban geography, planning, psychology, mathematics, statistics, operational research and computer studies.

    The quality of research at the Institute has been recognised by the award of the highest grade (5*A) in the HEFCE's Research Assessment Exercise.
