Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2023 - Salford celebrates Silver!

Categories: University Campus

The University of Salford has been awarded a Silver rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2023 results, a framework that encourages and recognises high-quality teaching and student outcomes in higher education.

TEF ratings reflect the extent to which a provider delivers an excellent experience and outcomes for its mix of undergraduate students and across the range of its undergraduate courses and subjects.

There are three ratings categories signifying increasing degrees of excellence above minimum quality requirements – Bronze, Silver and Gold. A Silver rating indicates that the student experience and student outcomes are typically very high quality.

TEF outcomes last for four years and are assessed by a panel of experts in learning and teaching, including academic and student members.

Pro Vice-Chancellor Education and Student Experience, Dr Sam Grogan, at the University of Salford commented: "Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to the TEF submission, including the Students’ Union, who we worked in partnership with on their report. More widely, my thanks go out to all colleagues for the significant amount of work that has been undertaken across the University to date. Despite the various challenges experienced across the sector in recent years, we have continued to develop and strengthen our position and can now look forward to building on our strong foundations."  

Full details of ratings, metrics, statements of findings, and the submissions provided in support of the assessments can be found on the Office for Students (OfS) website.
