“Our History researchers have made a transformation in their research quality profile for outputs.

This threefold growth in the 4* world-leading research outputs, which is ranked 5th within the institution, contributes to the University quality profile.

75% of their impact is regarded as internationally excellent demonstrating its values to culture and society.

We are proud that they achieved this while including all of their Teaching & Research staff in the submission.”

People Involved

“I am delighted with the leaps in 4* gradings from the last exercise in 2014, including a tripling of 4* ratings of outputs and environment. This has been rewarded with a pleasing rise in national positions, including achieving top 50 indicators for outputs, impact and environment. This represents substantial progress since REF2014.”
