LJMU rated highly in Teaching Excellence Framework

LJMU has been awarded a gold rating for student outcomes and silver overall in the national Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

The scheme, run by the Office for Students (OfS), assesses universities and colleges for excellence above a set of minimum standards in teaching, learning and achieving positive outcomes for students.

The TEF outcomes are based on evidence submitted by the university, a submission from students and national data. They are judged by a national panel of academics and each provider receives an overall rating and two underpinning ratings.

LJMU has been awarded:

  • Overall rating – SILVER
  • Student outcomes – GOLD
  • Student experience - SILVER

Commitment to excellence

Professor Phil Vickerman, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Student Experience), said: "I’m delighted with the TEF outcome for LJMU and it is important because it gives students, their families and external agencies confidence in the quality of teaching, learning and overall student experience at LJMU.

"The exceptional outcome reflects our commitment to excellence in all aspects of our students’ experience at LJMU, from the quality of our teaching and the curriculum to our provision of support around health, wellbeing and careers.

"Thank you to all staff for helping to deliver such a positive experience for our students. We must now endeavour to improve further and aim to achieve overall TEF gold next time."
