HEFCE closed at the end of March 2018. The information on this website is historical and is no longer maintained.
The HEFCE domain - www.hefce.ac.uk - will continue to function until September 2018. At this point we will close the site entirely and all its information will only be available from the National Web Archive.
Further details are announced today on the REF web-site.
The REF expert panels are now assessing submissions and the outcomes will be published on 18 December 2014. The submissions will be published in early 2015.
