The Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008 placed Bangor as one of the top ten Sport Science Schools in the UK with all staff submitted (unlike most other UK Sport Science Schools in that group).
The scientific excellence of our academics (all of whom are research active) is regularly recognised by research accreditation exercises such as the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) and Research Excellence Framework (REF). The results of the 2008 RAE confirmed our now well-established reputation for the highest quality research, with 80% of our work being judged as either world leading or at an international level (2-4*).
Our excellence in research feeds directly into all our programmes whether they be undergraduate and taught postgraduate degrees or postgraduate study by research (MRes, MPhil, PhD). Students are taught and supported by the researchers who drive the knowledge base in the subject areas they study, and we are proud that this support has been complimented and is regularly confirmed by student surveys and comments.
