On the basis of world-leading and internationally excellent research (4* and 3* standard) four of the departments in the Faculty of Science achieved top five rankings for their discipline across all universities in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014.
In all areas of our research we aim to advance knowledge and its application to improve the quality of life. We believe that a dynamic research environment is essential in maintaining academic excellence at all levels and this provides a very strong base for further research growth.
Royal Holloway has had success in achieving a greater proportion of women in its Science Faculty than the national average and holds a Bronze Athena SWAN award which recognises our commitment to advancing women's careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) in higher education.
