Welcome to the University’s “REF Portal” which is designed to inform researchers about the REF and assist the University in its preparations for the REF 2014.
Here you will find information about the REF; guidance on submissions, panel criteria, timescales, news and events and you will have the opportunity to submit information to enable us to compile the data we need to support our preparations.
More information will be added to this website as HEFCE finalises parameters for the REF exercise and practical processes are confirmed. The development of our submission to the REF is an iterative process informed by internal and external review , please contact us if you have any questions:
For all general enquiries please email firstname.lastname@example.org
