Our world-leading academics are experts in their fields, whose work is centred on making an impact. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2021), 87% of the University's research was assessed as having an outstanding or very considerable impact on society.
Each of our faculties host sector-leading research groups. They serve as crucial information hubs for researchers from all over the world, and have evolved to establish strong and internationally recognised reputations. Whether it’s working to prevent cancer, advising governments on policy or improving food security, our researchers work together to be the difference and solve real-world problems.
