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.

The National Student Survey (NSS), an independent survey asking students to rate the quality of their Higher Education experience, is widely recognised as a key measure of student satisfaction. This year we have continued to seek and respond to feedback from our students and have implemented a number of successful measures to further improve the experience of studying with us.
Staff and students have contributed to our new video project, "An A to Z of the School of Sociology and Social Policy". Learn more about the topics we are researching with these brief introductions. Visit the project page to view the latest videos.
