For those of you sending out PhD applications, this might interest you. My thanks to John Byron for alerting me to this.
NB: Durham’s Religion Department ranked first among
all UK Universities by the Research Assessment Exercise for 2008. Durham was ranked at no. 1 among all departments of
theology and religion in the UK in two categories: (a) the highest percentage
of publications at 4 (world-leading research) and (b) the highest Grade Point
Average for these publications.
Durham is sure to rank among the best (if not the best) in this years REF (formerly the RAE; assessed every three years).
