The School produces high-level original research in the foundations and cultures of the contemporary societies with which it engages. The research strength of the School is located both in individual researchers and in collaborative groupings, most notably in Film Studies, Latin American Studies, Linguistics and Medieval Studies.
At the last major assessment (RAE2008), Iberian and Latin American Languages & Culture had a GPA of 5.6, French Studies scored 5.00 and German 5.5. Within the Russell Group, French and Iberian are now ranked 6th and German 7th.
