December 18, 2014 Leave a comment
The School of History at the University of St Andrews is pleased to announce that it has been ranked top in Scotland and twelfth in the UK. According to REF 2014 – a detailed analysis of the research strengths of all United Kingdom universities ‐ 80% of the overall research of historians at St Andrews, assessed by quality of publications, impact and environment was deemed to be world‐leading or internationally excellent. Our grade point average overall was 3.23, only 0.01 behind Cambridge. We are especially proud to have come 6th in UK History Departments on Impact: a tremendous achievement given our comparatively small size and distance from major urban centres.
