Kent School of Architecture now one of the top ten research intensive schools in the UK

Following the announcement of the results of the United Kingdom REF on 18th December 2014, Professor Don Gray, Head of Kent School of Architecture (KSA) was delighted to report that the School was ranked 8th in the country for research intensity.

The review confirms that 40% of KSA research outputs submitted to the REF were ranked 4*, the internationally acknowledged definition of “world leading research.”

Professor Gray said, “This is a terrific result for Kent School of Architecture in its 10th anniversary year. Although this is our first submission to the REF, we have been placed equal with Cambridge.  We intend to build on this remarkable outcome to obtain even higher rankings in the next review.”
