Research Excellence Framework (REF)

The University of South Wales’s research is recognised in terms of impact as being world-leading and internationally excellent. 

Our research has brought new insights into the nature and circumstances of homicide and homicide investigation, and the development of a new 'hybrid model' of the justice system in Afghanistan. We have developed an understanding into how free radicals can influence the way the human brain ages, and altered the perception of women’s involvement in playing sport in Zanzibar.

 We have also developed a reviewed public awareness of storytelling as a powerful democratic art form, and influenced policy makers, the public and media organisations in the development of creative industries in small nations, including Wales.
