Warwick Physics Department's research excellence recognised by REF 2021

  • Warwick is one of the top research environments in the UK for Physics (ranked 7th), with all aspects considered to be conducive to producing either world-leading or internationally excellent research. This reflects the quality of facilities and infrastructure available to our researchers, and the supportive and inclusive working environment as demonstrated by our commitment to Juno/Athena Swan.
  • 96.5% of our research papers submitted to REF2021 were judged to be at least "internationally excellent" (3* or 4*) and 45% (compared to 24% in REF2014) were "world-leading" (4*). This reflects the breadth and strength of research across our six research clusters.
  • All our six impact case studies were considered to be either outstanding or very considerable in terms of their reach and significance.
  • Warwick Physics is ranked 8th for “research power” in the Times Higher Education REF2021 table. Research Power is a measure of the quality of our research multiplied by the number of researchers in the department. This is an excellent result.

Full results are published on the REF website.
