  • Research

    In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 results, 94% of research was internationally recognised. REF 2014 also found that 59% was judged to be of ‘world leading’ quality or ‘internationally excellent'.

    Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
    Business and Management Studies
