The University of Westminster has entered its research expertise and staff into the RAE in the last four exercises (1992, 1996, 2001, 2008 and recently to REF 2014, the latest exercise). Staff normally need to have four published works, from referred journals, and research has to be of the highest standard.
Research Excellence Framework 2014
The REF2014 confirmed the internationally excellent quality, reach and significance of our research and impact, building on our heritage of excellence in research, practice and innovation.
Research Assessment Exercise 2008
In RAE 2008, expert panels assessed research outputs, environment and esteem, producing judgements as to the quality achieved in each of these research elements in subject-based submissions from institutions.
Research Assessment Exercise 2001
The RAE 2001 included research from across the University, ranging from Biological Sciences to Art and Design.
