48% of our research (‘research outputs’) was assessed as world-leading in terms of its originality, significance, and rigour in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021). 45% of our overall submission was also assessed as world-leading (that includes research outputs, research impact (non-academic change/effect/benefit based on our research), and our research environment). More information about our people, our research centres, our projects, our courses, and our impact activities, is available via the links on this page.
