Research & Innovation

From pioneering research into brain tumours to seeking sustainable solutions, our research community's discoveries are having a positive impact on people around the world.

World-leading. Ground-breaking. Life-changing.

All of our academic Schools and Institutes have areas of research strength, overseen by our established Research Centres, many of which work closely with industry on large-scale projects.

In the most recent Research Excellence Framework exercise, the University achieved its best ever results. In REF2021 the University of Wolverhampton has significantly grown its research and submitted 4 new subject areas and 75% more staff than in REF2014. The results show that more than half of our research is judged as internationally excellent (3*) and world-leading (4*).   

Sixteen subject areas submitted had elements of world-leading research, amongst which featured research on changing perceptions of the Black Country, eliminating gender and race discrimination and improving health outcomes for all.
