Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 results
Eighty-two per cent of University of Winchester research submitted to the REF was considered to be of quality that is 'recognised internationally' or better in terms of originality, significance and rigour. The overall profile of seven out of eight units included research of 'world-leading' (4*) quality.
The REF assesses the quality and impact of research submitted by UK universities across all disciplines. The results provide benchmarks and public information about the research performance of universities, and will be used to allocate around £2 billion per year in research funding to universities.
