With a strategy intended to drive up the standard of the University's best research activity, Cardiff Metropolitan University made three focused submissions. The summary quality profile for the University as reported in the Times Higher Education is below:
80% of the quality profile was rated 4* or 3*
For each Unit of Assessment (UoA) there is an overall quality profile. This is tabulated with data from the results of the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) 2008. It is not a 'like-for-like' comparison because the criteria for compiling the overall profiles have changed, but it does show the significant progress that has been made.
