Impact at the School of Social Sciences
We believe our research should not only be excellent but also socially useful.
This was reflected in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework (REF) with Education placing 1st in the UK for impact, underlining the standards of our research community.
Our research has a record of impacting upon public debate, policy development and practice based innovations, while our researchers have strong relationships with policy-makers and practitioners. They regularly work with the Welsh Government and other public agencies to enact real-life change for specific social issues and problems.
