What is TEF?
The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) judges universities based on their teaching ability, drop-out rate and academic support – rather than other elements which don’t affect students as much, such as research.
Each university that participates is ranked like the Olympics – with Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.
