Exceptional research

Queen Mary has a strong tradition of academic excellence. The results of the most recent UK assessment of research – the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) – have confirmed our place in the very top group of universities nationally. Overall, we ranked 9th in the UK among multi-faculty universities and 5th in the UK for our percentage of 3* and 4* research outputs.

This is an outstanding result for Queen Mary. We have now clearly cemented our position as one of the UK’s foremost research-led universities
