Liverpool Hope University is proud to be celebrating its research successes following the results of the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF2021).

The findings affirm the University’s reputation as an institution with an inclusive research culture at its core.

More than 96 percent of eligible staff were submitted as part of the REF research exercise, with all 13 subject units assessed as having aspects of their work in Internationally Excellent (3*) or World Leading (4*) categories.

The Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research, Professor Atulya Nagar, said: “The University’s REF2021 results are a marked improvement over the impressive REF2014 outcomes, demonstrating a rapid phase of research development at the institution. The quality profile combined with the proportion of eligible staff submitted by the University makes us clearly a Research-Intensive institution with a strong foundation for our future scholarly ambitions.”

Professor Gerald Pillay, Hope’s Vice-Chancellor and Rector, added: “I’m delighted at the latest scores and it is great news that the University has made gains across the board. We are in a strong position as we begin our preparations for the next Research Assessment.”

REF 2021 results and analysis can be found on the Funding Bodies website.
