The results of the REF2014 (Research Excellence Framework), published on 18 December 2014, confirms RVC’s unique status in veterinary research. The proportion of the RVC’s research rated as internationally world leading (4*) or excellent (3*) increased to 79% in the REF2014 from 55% six years ago (RAE 2008).

In maintaining a large critical mass and inclusive approach to supporting both clinical and veterinary research, the College has sustained its position as third for its Unit of Assessment in the power weighting (out of 29 institutions). It is this weighting (quality multiplied by volume) that determines future research funding.
