Coventry University has received a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), published by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).

CU London is part of the Coventry University Group and is thrilled with the rating.

A total of 134 higher education institutions took part in the TEF with just over 30 per cent achieving Gold.

The TEF assesses universities on the quality of their teaching by looking at measures including student satisfaction, student retention rates and graduate employment levels. Its award ratings of Gold, Silver and Bronze are valid for up to three years.

The TEF judging panel noted that Coventry University has ‘consistently outstanding student support services to all students, in particular those from disadvantaged backgrounds, which support retention and progression’ and ‘an outstanding institutional culture that places emphasis on recognising and rewarding excellent teaching’.

This award puts the quality of the student experience uppermost and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone within the University.

CU London opens in September 2017 and will be bringing award winning education into East London. Academic, technical and support staff are already appointed and share a collective goal to ensure that outstanding teaching, learning and assessment remains a consistent feature of high student achievement.

The Gold rating in the TEF follows its strong performance in the Guardian University Guide 2018, where the Coventry University climbed to 12th place–its highest ever listing.
