Nearly three quarters of UHI research has been classified as ‘world leading' or ‘internationally excellent' in a new expert review undertaken to assess the quality of research in UK higher education institutions.

Research in health and nursing, earth systems and environmental and marine sciences, archaeology, education, area studies, Gaelic and history were all recognised by the Research Excellence Framework published today (Thursday 12 May).

This latest assessment looked at a range of aspects of the work of 117 researchers across the UHI partnership. It examined the impact of their research, demonstrating how targeted research at UHI can support sustainable and inclusive economic prosperity in our communities, as well as addressing some of Scotland's biggest challenges.

The board is collectively responsible for overseeing the College’s activities, determining its future direction and fostering an environment in which the College Mission is achieved, and the potential of all learners is maximised.
