Research Excellence

December 2014

For a new department, these results are truly outstanding and put us significantly ahead of many long-established Psychology departments in the U.K. who have had justifiable reputations for research excellence for many years.   Given that Edge Hill University has been selected in 2014 by the Times Higher Education as the ‘University of the Year’, and given our very high NSS ratings combined with our excellent REF scores, this means that we have been independently judged to be a truly excellent Psychology department for both teaching and research.
