REF (Research Excellence Framework) 2021

This is the main assessment of research across the higher education sector in the UK, and is vitally important in determining both future research funding and our global reputation. The REF process assesses each of our discipline areas in terms of its quality and is carried out once every six-to-seven years.

Research impact case studies account for 25% of the REF assessment and describe the practical benefits that result from our research. You can read highlights from some of our case studies – from Art & Design to Engineering and English - below.
