Our research covers a broad range of health, biomedical, sports, exercise and performance science and behavioural sciences related areas. The quality and depth of the College's research has been demonstrated with its excellent set of results from the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, with the vast majority of the research submitted in the three units of assessment (Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy; Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience; Sport and Exercise Sciences, Leisure and Tourism) ranked as ‘World Leading’ or ‘Internationally Excellent’.
Research Excellence Framework 2021
The next REF exercise will be conducted in 2021. The College of Human Sciences will be submitting to the following units:
- UoA 3 - Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy
- UoA 4 - Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience
- UoA 24 - Sport and Exercise Sciences, Leisure and Tourism
- UoA 26 - Modern Languages and Linguistics

A commitment to world-class, scientifically rigorous research
The College has sought to build on its long history in health and behavioural science related research with expertise spanning ageing and dementia, health services and management, chronic disease, brain disorder rehabilitation, cognitive and development psychology, randomised health trials, high performance physiology and psychology, and economic evaluation of public health and pharmacological initiatives. The College's commitment to world-class, scientifically rigorous research is evidenced by its substantial investment in laboratories and equipment in biochemistry, hydrodensitometry, cell biology, perceptual motor testing and fMRI brain imaging. Our research ethos is to advance both basic and applied science, challenge current thinking in the health and behavioural science domains while informing the College’s teaching and learning provision.
