We've been rated GOLD in the 2023 Teaching Excellence Framework

NTU has been awarded Gold for teaching in the 2023 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) assessment.

TEF is a national scheme run by the Office for Students. It aims to encourage higher education providers to deliver excellence in teaching, learning and achieving positive outcomes.

Our Gold rating means that, typically, the student experience at NTU, and the outcomes it leads to are outstanding.

We are all so delighted at NTU’s gold result. For us this feels an excellent way to recognise the ongoing co-creation NTSU and NTU have in improving and enhancing all aspects of student life. It’s fantastic that we’re welcomed to the table to make sure the student voice is heard and understood. We are gold!
