Outstanding Result in 2008 RAE

Research in the Department of Music was very highly graded indeed in the most recent UK Research Assessment, and the Department is now ranked 4th nationally with 80% of its research placed in the highest two international quality categories. This result, which is also one of the highest in the University of Sheffield as a whole, recognises the research environment that the Department offers and the esteem in which its staff are held as well as the quality of recent outputs (books, articles, scores, DVDs, CDs, performances, broadcasts, etc.) by current staff.
