    If you sort it out for a particular subject then it's the research quality for the respective subject. If you go on the general league table, the research quality represents the university as a whole.
    thanks for the reply =)

    that's what i thought...but according to the table, Manchester uni's research quality for Computer Science is 3.9. But according to their website its 5

    or are they 2 different things?

    On the website they say that it's ranked "5* (the highest grade) from the most recent government Research Assessment Exercise"

    The Times may not follow data from the government research assessment, they do their own and rank according to thier own assesment. Thats why the times, the guardian and the complete university guide all have different ranking.

    Times good uni guide explain how they work out the research quality from the table key. I think they're using the same figures but have been manipulated in order to get a ranking.

    Research Quality

    Overall quality of research based on the new 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE). The outputs of the RAE gave each institution a profile in the following categories: 4* world-leading, 3* internationally excellent and 2* internationally recognised (with another two lower categories). The Funding Bodies decided only to fund research in the higher 3 categories, and directed more funds to the very best research by applying weightings: 4* receiving 7 times the weight of 2*, and 3* receiving 3 times the weight of 2*. These weightings have been used in the tables. As an example, in the calculations used a university with 10% of its submitted research at 4* and 90% at 3* would generate an initial score of 3.4 (i.e. 0.1 x 7 + 0.9 x 3). This represents the first stage of the scoring.

    No problem

    You might want to check out the wikipedia page, it has alot of information about the university. How much is being invested, different rankings and such.

    Yesterday I was talking to Flavity (she's a member on here) and made a reference to an Archer book...thinking she was you.
