Cambridge's world-leading performance in Research Excellence Framework (REF)05 Jan 2015
The internationally excellent and world-leading quality of the Faculty's research was reconfirmed in the recent national Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF). The Cambridge submission came 1st in the country for the crucial categories of outputs, impact and environment for weighted 4* (defined as 'world-leading'), as well as for weighted impact on combined 4* and 3* (defined respectively as 'world-leading' and 'internationally excellent'), and 2nd in the UK for weighted outputs and environment for combined 4* and 3*. These high rankings were reflected in the Times Higher Education Supplement's placement (1st January 2015) of Cambridge MML in top place for Modern Languages and Linguistics (rather than single linguistics) intensity-weighted submissions.
