Are you ready for REF?

08 Oct 2012

Preparations continue for the Research Excellence Framework (REF)

The way that the quality of our research is measured is changing – from 2014 it will be measured by the REF, rather than the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).

As a University, our preparations for the REF2014 are well underway. 

If you are a member of staff who is eligible to be entered into the REF, then you can play your part by making sure that you have completed the REF Preparation Exercise.  The closing date is Monday 15 October and you can take part by visiting:

and selecting the Teaching and Research Tab.

For further information about our REF preparations visit: 

Here you can find our Code of Practice for the REF, including the policy for selecting staff for inclusion in the REF2014 submission and the process for considering staff individual circumstances.
