REF 2021

12 May 2022

The REF (Research Excellent Framework) results have come out and shown an incredible result for Newman English. Our outputs, which include books and articles by all staff members, were judged to be some of the best in the country, with 62.5% being classed 4* or 'World Leading' and 31.2% being classed 3* or 'Internationally Excellent'. At 62.5%, we had the third-highest percentage of 4* research, beating out some of the best universities in the country. I'm very proud to have led the UoA the last few years and looking forward to how research in the group will continue to grow.
