'In the latest Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), Sociology and Social Policy staff joined colleagues in the Division of Social Statistics and the Centre for Research on Ageing as part of a joint submission to the RAE Sub-Panel in Social Work and Social Policy and Administration. Our submission was ranked third in the country, with an overall ‘Grade Point Average’ of 3.0. The University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Bill Wakeham, described the results obtained by the University as a whole as ‘an excellent endorsement of the extremely high standards of research produced by the University of Southampton’. He added: ‘These results underline how far the University of Southampton has progressed in the past decade, to become one of the most respected research universities in the UK’.
