Imperial College home to UK’s greatest concentration of world-leading and internationally excellent research

Imperial College London was judged as being home to the greatest concentration of world-leading and internationally excellent rated research amongst all multi-faculty UK universities in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), whose results were published in December 2008.

Not only did 73 per cent of the College’s staff have their research judged as world-leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*), the highest percentage of all UK multi-faculty universities, but the College also increased both the number and the percentage of staff submitted to the assessment compared to the preceding RAE which took place in 2001. Ninety-three per cent of Imperial’s academic staff, a total of 1,225, were selected for inclusion in the 2008 RAE compared to 87 per cent in 2001, representing a 6.7 per cent increase in terms of actual staff numbers.
