The university rankings are based on the average points scored by each researcher entered for the exercise.

The points score has been calculated from the scores awarded to universities by the Higher Education Funding Council. There are seven grades from 1 through 2, 3a, 3b, 4, 5 to 5*.

The number of researchers scoring each grade has been calculated, added and divided by the total number of researchers entered.

The table also shows the percentage of university staff put forward by each university.

The more specialised institutions and the colleges of higher education have been omitted.
