Research at the University of Worcester has grown significantly over the last 10 years. This growth is most clearly shown in the outcomes of the Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). Worcester was the most improved University in the UK based on Research Fortnight’s “Research Power” measure, reflecting a more than four-fold increase in the number of staff submitted compared to RAE 2008 and a commensurate increase in the quality of the research. As a consequence of its REF 2014 submission, Worcester’s QR income for 2015- 16 is up by 341% from 2014-15.
The University is committed to further developing its research profile in the coming period, through a strategic approach to its support for and investment in research. As part of this investment it is funding a number of PhD studentships in its areas of particular research strength. These are three-year, full-time, doctoral research studentships. Each studentship attracts a bursary, in addition to a full tuition fee waiver.
