Research Excellence Framework 2021
We are delighted to announce that REF 2021 has assessed 100% of all our research activity (outputs, impact, and environment) as “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”.
We are the only History of Art department in the UK to have our research rated exclusively within these categories (REF 4* and 3*).
These results are the outcome of seven years of hard work and exceptional research and impact from our academic staff. You can read more about their work on our research pages
A huge thanks to everyone who made this possible. Many people work alongside us on our research over the years: university support staff, museum curators, heritage industry experts, teaching staff, our wonderful students, and the public. We look forward to building on this success in the years to come.
