REF 2014 Results

Our School has done extremely well at the last REF (2014), achieving its best result by far in the department’s long and proud history. More than three quarters of publications by our staff were ranked as “internationally excellent” or indeed “world leading”. All this was further corroborated by our top grades for the impact our research generates and the research environment the School provides. This puts us in the top ten of Russell Group universities. Particularly when considered alongside our other impressive performances related to teaching and student satisfaction, this reflects the School’s recent achievements, its standing in the wider scientific community, and the quality of teaching we provide for our students.  Read more about REF 2014.
