The results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 were released today, and they cement Manchester LEL’s reputation as a top research department!

LEL returned a joint submission with colleagues in Modern Languages. Overall, 41% of the submission was judged 4* (world-leading) and 39% was judged 3* (internationally excellent), adding up to 80% in the all-important top bands. Most impressive was the environment score: our environment is 80% 4*, 20% 3*.

The Modern Languages and Linguistics results received special recognition in a message from President Dame Nancy Rothwell, along with results from Allied Health Professions (Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy), Biological Sciences, Electrical and Electronic Engineering/Materials, Physics, Computer Science and Informatics, Aeronautical, Mechanical, Chemical and Manufacturing Engineering, Business and Management Studies, Sociology, and Anthropology and Development Studies.
