2021 Submission

We 'hit the button' on our REF 2021 submission on 29 March 2021. In all we submitted 500 staff, 1106 outputs, 45 impact case studies (ICSs) and environment statements for our 14 Units of Assessment (UoAs).

In all 500 staff were submitted (458.22 FTE). This represents 32% of all academic staff and a doubling of the number we submitted to REF 2014. We also returned staff to three additional UoAs that we did not submit to in 2014. 47% of our submitted staff were female, up from 41% in 2014.

We submitted 1106 outputs to REF 2021. As well as journal articles, this included 118 hardcopy books, 69 creative portfolios (incorporating performances, designs, artefacts, exhibitions and digital media), four research reports and a patent.

More information will appear on this page when the results are published by Research England in April 2022.
