Cardiff Today & Tomorrow - Research
Cardiff is recognised internationally as a reserch intensive university and is a member of the Russell Group of the UK's top 20 research universities.
Research and scholarship a major force in each of our 28 academic schools and the vast majority of the University's academic staff are working in areas which are acknowledged by independent assessors as being of national and international significance. Such recognition is welcome, but it is the enhancement that our research makes to the quality of life and lifetime prospects of people that is our driving force. Whilst seeking to establish new knowledge and extend the frontiers of human understanding through fundamental research, our research work also provides substantial economic, social and cultural benefits.
