As a research led university balancing academic excellence with the broader student experience, we are delighted to be in a leading position ahead many Russell Group universities.

Keele University has added to its outstanding credentials by appearing in an outstanding 7th position in a trial new assessment of university quality.

A Government drive to measure university quality based on educational standards will see a new assessment, the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), introduced next year.

This week saw the sector leading publication, Times Higher Education, launch a trial assessment modelled on the potential TEF methodology. Whilst there are many league tables attempting to rate universities, the Government is pushing for quality to be measured in a way which can better reflect the complete student educational experience. In future university funding will be linked to performance in the TEF.

This new table is the first indication of the impact of this new approach to university ranking.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Trevor McMillan comments: “As a research led university balancing academic excellence with the broader student experience, we are delighted to be in a leading position ahead many Russell Group universities.

“As the university sector gives greater focus to teaching standards and value for money for students, this table shows that the combination of being a smaller university, single campus based and research active, enables Keele to be a leading higher education provider.”
