REF 2014

Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014

The Research Excellence Framework 2014 assessed the quality of research in the UK's higher education institutions.

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

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


In 2014 our REF submission came from the following schools, which have now merged to form the School of Engineering:

School of Chemical Engineering

School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences

School of Electrical, Electronic Engineering

School of Marine Science and Technology

School of Mechanical Engineering
