Universities: Teaching Excellence Framework


Results of The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) have been published. The framework was introduced by the Government this year to help students who are thinking about applying to university or college for autumn 2018, make informed choices about degree courses.

295 universities, colleges and alternative providers of higher education have taken part in the TEF.  Each of which were rated gold, silver or bronze, or received a provisional award.

59 of these were rated gold, 116 silver, and 56 bronze. 

The Framework was introduced to encourage teaching and learning excellence across the UK.

A panel of independent experts, including academics, students and employer representatives, were involved in the ratings decision, based on national data and evidence submitted by each university or college.  The three areas considered were teaching quality, the learning environment and the educational and professional outcomes achieved by students. A full list of evidence used can be viewed on the HEFCE website.

The TEF awards will also be published on Unistats and the UCAS website, alongside other information, to help inform prospective students’ choices.

A full list of ratings can be viewed here.
