Independent Review of the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF)

We support the aims of TEF but express concern that its metrics (including student satisfaction and employment outcomes) do not capture teaching excellence and do not explore nuances in localised provision.

Allocation of science and research funding

We endorse the dual support approach to funding, and argue for the ringfenced AR funding consistent with geography's accepted part-STEM status.

The Impact of Spending Cuts on Science and Scientific Research

Our response strongly states that geography should be understood as a part-STEM subject, and defends the contribution of geography to scientific research and value creation

Spending Review 2010 inquiry

Our written response to the Science and Technology Committee's inquiry into spending review argued for greater recognition and support for the role of social sciences, arts and humanities in research.
