We are proud to be recognised as one of the UK’s truly outstanding universities, through our commitment to areas including student satisfaction, graduate employment, and quality of teaching.

Most recently, we've been ranked among the top five most sustainable universities in the world, and we also won the Giving Back category in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards.

Prior to that, we were named University of the Year 2019 in the Guardian University Awards. This represents another significant addition to our growing list of major accolades. This prestigious award comes after we received the coveted Times Higher Education University of the Year 2017 and the Times and Sunday Times Modern University of the Year 2018.

In terms of the quality of our teaching and learning, NTU has been rated Gold in the Government’s Teaching Excellence Framework – the highest ranking available.
