WIRAD aims to become Wales' premier Art & Design research institution and an internationally significant player in the Art & Design research field by building on the research excellence and talent that Wales possesses.
The Wales Institute for Research in Art & Design (WIRAD) is pleased to announce that in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise the Art & Design panel rated 95% of the research submission as international standard, with 70% rated as either Internationally Excellent or World Leading. Using Times Higher weightings this makes the submission 12th out of 70 in the UK and the best in Wales. This significant achievement by WIRAD's founding members, UWIC (Now Cardiff Metropolitan University) and Newport, demonstrates very clearly the international quality of WIRAD's research. It puts WIRAD in the best possible position to build on this achievement through our invitation to key research partners from across Wales to join in this success story.
