Message from our Head of College

"I am delighted to say that the College has performed extremely well, with every UoA contributing significantly to an enhanced performance, both for the College and the wider University.

In all our disciplines, the majority of our research was judged to be ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. The impact of our research beyond academia was assessed across 28 case studies. In six out of the nine units we submitted, the quality of all the case studies were judged to be ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. Similarly, the environment in which our research takes place was considered to be ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ in all aspects in six of our nine units, with 100% of our research environment judged to be at least of international standing.

The spirit of collaboration and versatility of the 256 researchers in our College underpins our excellent results. I am very proud of our sustained commitment to nurturing research through supporting researchers at all career stages, and the mutual support of colleagues for each other in our Schools and through Arts Lab."
