TEF Gold - What Does It Mean

If you’ve been on our website anytime in the past year, you might have noticed this logo…

TEF Gold

But what does it mean? How does it affect the University or your student experience? Let’s investigate…

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 which participates is ranked like the Olympics – with Bronze, Silver and Gold awards.

Why should you care?!

Only around 25% of UK universities received Gold in 2017 – meaning it isn’t easy to achieve the prestigious Gold rating.

Join us here at Aston University, for excellent, gold rated teaching.
