At Nottingham Trent University (NTU) 55% of our research was judged to be world-leading or internationally excellent, according to the results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The REF 2014 exercise assessed the quality and impact of research in UK higher education institutions.
In total, we submitted research under 16 units of assessment, and among our submitted research was a number of impact case studies that highlight the real-world impact our research is having, in areas ranging from cancer treatment to food security.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Edward Peck, said: "This evaluation exercise demonstrates that NTU is a university that truly values ideas through the quality of its research and enriches society in the ways in which it ensures that it impacts upon the lives of us all.
"It is evidence that world-leading research can flourish in universities that are also teaching intensive; indeed, it is crucial that our students experience teaching that is infused with ideas derived from academics producing research at the leading edge of their disciplines."
