Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 assessed the quality of research in the UK’s higher education institutions.

The review process is managed by the Higher Education Funding Council for England. It is made on three main criteria:

  • quality of research outputs
  • impact of research (beyond the University)
  • vitality of the research environment


Our research centre submitted to Unit of Assessment (UoA) 3. Visit the University's research website to find out our REF results.

The previous analysis was the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008. You can see the results of RAE 2008 for Newcastle University.
