WORK at the University of Portsmouth is rated world-leading in the latest survey of research quality in UK universities.

The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF), announced today, determine how much public money is given to fund research. Around £2bn a year will be allocated to universities.

More than 60 per cent of research submitted by the university is rated as world-leading and internationally excellent, an increase of 24 per cent from 2008.

Vice-chancellor Professor Graham Galbraith said: ‘These are superb overall results for the university and I am absolutely delighted with this demonstration of our breadth and depth in research.’
