REF

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) is the UK’s system for assessing the quality of research in UK higher education institutions and is undertaken by the four UK higher education funding bodies.

Outcomes from the REF provide accountability for public funding of universities and influence funding allocation.

The REF2021 results show the combined strength of King’s profile for high-quality, impactful research within allied and applied health research, including dentistry.

Research from the Faculty was considered within Unit of Assessment 3 (UoA3), which covers research in Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy. King’s was the top rated university within UoA3 showing the combined strength of King’s profile for impactful research within allied and applied health research.

UoA3 research at King’s is defined by its collaborative nature, that it spans the whole life course, from birth to death and takes account of the whole person – mind and body. The Faculty’s contribution and the outcomes below reinforce its position as a world-leader in dentistry, oral and craniofacial sciences, producing high quality research that spans discovery to clinical research.
