Research Assessment Exercise 2008
Top Ten For Research Power
The University of Sheffield is among the top ten in the Russell Group, the association of leading UK research-intensive universities, according to the results of the independent 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).
Sheffield's quality, breadth and volume of research activity is further demonstrated by the fact that research carried out by 93% of the University’s academic staff submitted is internationally recognised and in many cases world-leading. The University is also among one of only ten universities in the country that submitted more than 40 units of assessment, with over 90% of our eligible staff included in the RAE.
