In Tony Tysome's full-page encomium for Cardiff University, the word "teaching" does not appear (Analysis, THES , April 5). It is as if Cardiff were an elite research institute, not a place getting most of its income from its 14,183 students. Cardiff's research achievement is admirable, but part of the research assessment exercise's "failure" is a consequential contempt for the university's crucial teaching function.
