THE UNIVERSITY of Worcester has been given a ‘Silver’ rating in the first ever report published by the Teaching Excellence scheme (TEF).
The assessors, who recently announced the results for every university in England, found that Worcester delivers high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for its students and consistently exceeds rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education.
The TEF panel also noted the University excels at teaching which encourages high levels of student engagement and commitment to learning and study.
The University is now one of the most successful in the country for the employment of its graduates, after being ranked in the top 20 of all English Higher Education institutes.
Professor David Green, the University’s vice chancellor and chief executive, said: “The high-quality of a university education at Worcester has been evident for many years.
“I’m delighted this has been officially confirmed in this new national assessment and thank all the hard-working colleagues and students at the University who made this excellent result possible.”
Professor Sarah Greer, University of Worcester deputy vice chancellor, who led the TEF submission, said: “High-quality teaching has always been at the very heart of what we stands for.
“The University was originally founded as an emergency teacher training college 70 years ago, and since then thousands of students have received a first class education and gone on to make a real difference in society.
“More of our graduates have earned good degrees and gone on to achieve professional and personal success than ever before.”
