97% of our research is of international quality, up from 87% in 2008.

Our score for ‘research power’ increased by 59%, the third largest increase of the top 50 research-intensive universities.

The REF also endorsed Kent’s research community: all our academic schools provide an environment that is conducive to research of international excellence.
