Teaching and research excellence

Our teaching and research are nationally-recognised and accredited, so you can be sure that your education is of the highest standard.


The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 defined 87% of our research as world-leading or internationally excellent, ranking us 12th for research quality in the UK.

In May 2013, the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) reviewed our teaching and confirmed that we've met all their expectations for quality and standards in higher education.

The QAA also highlighted good practice, including:

  • listening to and responding to student views
  • arranging and supporting work placements
  • providing accessible, reliable, and up-to-date information for students, staff, and the public
  • using our Quality Assurance Code of Practice to maintain our own standards of teaching
