The School of Biosciences has demonstrated it is a world-leading Research School, seeing an increase in its overall GPA to 3.24 since 2014. Biosciences published 76% of its research papers in the highest “world leading” and “internationally excellent” categories.
A fantastic impact case score, of which an exceptional 83% were assessed as being in the highest “world leading” category (and 100% in the “world leading” and “internationally excellent” categories), demonstrated the significance of our science as making a sustained and significant impact on society.
