Times Higher Education used the REF ‘grade point average’ (GPA) and estimated Research Intensity, which is the GPA multiplied by the proportion of eligible staff submitted.

"The College’s Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience submission also excelled with 44% rated 'world-leading': an evaluation which underlined its grounding in excellence, particularly in systems neuroscience, cognitive neuroimaging and social interactions."

Photo 4 [3 October 2014] £1m project sets out to find mental illness ‘fingerprint’ in brainwaves
A team of psychologists and psychiatrists are beginning research on a brainwave ‘fingerprint’ which could identify young people at risk of developing serious mental illness.
Researchers from the Universities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are looking to recruit 100 volunteers aged between 16 and 35 for a new £1m project which will measure their brain activity and examine changes in their mental state for a period of up to two years.
The researchers hope that the project could lead to an early-warning system capable of identifying people at high risk of developing psychosis before they fully manifest the symptoms, such as hallucinations or delusions.
Photo 5 [3 June 2014] Glasgow Psychology is consistently at the top end of Psychology in the UK and has just been rated as number 2 in the UK out of 109 universities. Once again we have exceptionally high student satisfaction and the highest possible 'added value' score.
Psychology at the University of Glasgow is rated very highly for research and teaching.
In the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework, Psychology at Glasgow was ranked #1 in research intensity (jointly with UCL) according to the Times Higher Education. We earned the highest grade possible (4*) for a very high proportion (44%) of research. For teaching, we are consistently ranked 1st in Scotland and in the top 5 in the UK in national league tables, such as #2 in the 2015 Guardian Universities Guide.
The Subject Area of Psychology spans two colleges:

-  the College of Science
   and Engineering

-  the College of Medical,
    Veterinary and Life Sciences
