Organisation profile

Research at Portsmouth is flourishing and this is demonstrated by the strength and variety of the research collaborations in which the institution is engaged. Our research ranges from the purest sciences - investigating the evolution of galaxies - to the most economically and technologically applied - computer games design. Through studies of history, literature and society, our researchers develop and communicate new insights on topics ranging from Charles Dickens to the European Union, and from the challenges of ageing to new methods of fraud-prevention.

The University of Portsmouth is ranked among the top 400 universities in the world and the top modern university in the United Kingdom in theĀ Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Our world-class research is further validated by the outcome of the most recent nationalĀ Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), with an average 40 per cent of the research rated internationally excellent or world-leading and 78 per cent rated internationally recognised or above.
