In the latest Research Excellence Framework (2021) Newman entered more than twice the number of staff than in 2014 when it made its REF debut.  All subject areas submitted were assessed as including a high percentage of ‘internationally significant’ work, while five subject areas – Education, History, Sport, Social Work and Social Policy, and English – were also assessed to produce work of ‘world-leading’ quality – the highest possible grade.

Research is an important part of scholarly activity at Newman, indeed one of the great benefits to undergraduate students at Newman is that they are taught by research active staff passionate about sharing the new knowledge they generated to students. The ethos of a scholarly community espoused by Saint John Henry Newman is alive within 7Dzʿ, therefore the development of early career researchers, as well as supporting established readers and professors, is an important aspect of Newman’s research strategy.
