In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Research England has delayed the REF submission and introduced a number of measures to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on HEIs’ submissions.
The revised deadline for submissions is 31 March 2020. The University has developed an internal timeline for submission based on this revised deadline.
All impact case studies (except those significantly affected by COVID-19) are to be submitted to the University’s REF Impact System by 2 November 2020. Each case study in UOAs 1, 2 and 4 will then undergo a process of detailed internal review prior to submission to Research England.
