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.
