Research at the University of Ulster
The University's Research Institutes comprise high calibre research staff supported by highly qualified technical support staff and doctoral and postdoctoral research staff.

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) is the successor to the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), which was first run in the UK in 1986 primarily as a means to collect information on which decisions about the allocation of funding to higher education institutions (HEIs) for research could be made.

Faculty Research Pages

The six faculties of the University have Research Graduate Schools, and their aim is:

'to improve and professionalise the training of research students within the faculty by improving the quality of research induction and training, providing greater co-ordination and structuring of the monitoring and management of progress, providing improved resources for research students and their general welfare, increasing the numbers of research students and developing the faculty as a centre of excellence in graduate research'.
