Psychology celebrate hugely successful contribution to REF2014

Thu Jan 08 09:17:00 GMT 2015

The results of REF 2014 confirm the excellence of the research carried out at Bath.

As the Department of Psychology is relatively small compared to other psychology departments that are rated within the top 10 of the subject league tables, our Psychology staff at Bath were distributed amongst larger research groupings within the University’s other Units of Assessment.

This reflects the interdisciplinary nature of our Department’s research.

Results

Two thirds of Psychology (FTE) staff were submitted under Allied Health Professions, and 11% within each of the other three Units of Assessment, as listed in the table below:
