Teaching excellence

The results of the new Teaching Excellence Framework are in, and we’ve been awarded a gold rating. That means we deliver consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.

TEF Gold

Based on the evidence we provided, the TEF Panel judged that Nottingham Trent University (NTU) delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students, which is among the highest quality found in the UK.

NTU is one of 59 universities, colleges and other providers in the UK to receive the highest gold rating, from the 295 that have taken part.

The judging panel highlighted NTU’s approach to improving the student experience through: innovative learning and teaching; outstanding student engagement; the range of high quality work placements; and our engagement with employers who contribute to the development of courses.
