Birmingham’s RAE results

Research quality is at the heart of the University, as we believe that excellent research enhances teaching quality and is an essential attribute on the global academic stage. Our commitment to excellence is evidenced in our consistently strong RAE performance over the years.

However, we are not complacent and will be seeking to further increase the proportion of our research activity that is regarded as world leading (the highest accolade) or internationally significant in the Reasearch Excellence Framework (REF) in 2014.

We are delighted that the subjects listed below were regarded as being among the leaders in the UK, and the University is currently investing in facilities to further enhance the quality of work undertaken in these disciplines.

The following research areas featured in the top ten in the Research Fortnight’s Power Ranking based on the 2008 RAE results.
