In REF2014 all four UoAs in the Arts and Humanities Research Institute at Ulster improved some or all of their metrics since the last exercise in 2008.
To summarise:
  • In UoA28b Modern Languages and Linguistics, 50% of outputs and 70% of the impact of their work on industry and policy was rated 4* (world-leading) and 3* (internationally excellent)
  • In UoA29 English, 80% of outputs (24.5% 4* outputs, by some distance the highest in the Faculty) and over 60% of the impact of their work on policy and practice was rated 4* (world-leading) and 3* (internationally excellent).
  • In UoA30 History, 50% of outputs and over 75% of the impact of their work on policy and practice was rated 4* (world-leading) and 3* (internationally excellent).
  • In UoA35 Music, Drama, Dance and Performing Arts, nearly 60% of outputs and 100% of the impact of their work on policy and creative practice was rated 4* (world-leading) and 3* (internationally excellent) with Impact at 90% 4*, one of only a handful of UoAs to achieve this score across the whole HE sector.
 Many congratulations to all who contributed to REF2014 and to these hugely impressive results.
