The Research Excellence Framework (REF) is the new system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions.
In the last REF exercise in 2014, our School ranked 7/94 in research intensity in UK institutions as a whole and third out of eight in Russel Group Universities.
The Russell Group represents 24 leading UK universities which are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience and unrivalled links with business and the public sector http://www.russellgroup.ac.uk/
All of our Lecturers in the School (except Lecturers Education) submitted publications for review to the 2014 REF and 100 percent of these publications were ranked as being of international quality or above.
Our School also submitted three research impact case studies. These case-studies are designed to showcase the real world impact of our research on improving health and healthcare.
