    Research quality

    RESEARCH QUALITY

    Cardiff University is recognised in independent government assessments as one of Britain’s leading teaching and research universities.

    Cardiff is a member of the Russell Group of Britain’s leading research universities, underlining Cardiff’s status as one of the most exciting, innovative and successful universities in the UK.

    World-leading research is being undertaken throughout Cardiff University, as indicated by the latest Research Assessment Exercise (2008). 33 out of 34 research areas submitted by the University for assessment by independent panels of experts are shown to be undertaking research that includes work that is “world-leading in terms of originality, significance and rigour”.

    Based on Research Power, which reflects both the quality of research and the number of staff submitted for assessment, Cardiff is ranked 15th in the UK. Five research areas within Humanities & Social Studies are ranked in the top ten of their disciplines and a further three areas within Humanities & Social Studies are in the top twenty.

    Studying in Schools with such strong research profiles benefits students in many ways, including bringing them into contact with the latest thinking in their fields and interaction with academic staff who are active at the cutting-edge of their disciplines.
