The NFER Research Mark

The mark of quality research engagement in your school or college


Get recognition for your school’s achievements in research engagement. This thorough and comprehensive award scheme is based on eight criteria that are all elements of a research-engaged school or college. It includes a visit to your school by an experienced NFER research associate who will give valuable feedback, recommendations and a full report. Once awarded, the mark will give you public recognition for your achievements.
