Manchester Metropolitan University has received Gold status in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), meaning it has been rated as an outstanding university for its student experience.

The TEF is a national scheme run every four years by the Office for Students, which encourages and recognises the quality of teaching, the learning environment and outcomes for students, all of which help inform prospective undergraduate students with their choice of where to study.

Bronze, Silver and Gold are the three rating categories signifying increasing degrees of excellence above the minimum quality requirements. The panel review a combination of sources: evidence submitted by universities and their students and numerical indicators TEF produce from national datasets such as the National Student Survey.

The TEF has an overall rating and a rating for each of the two aspects assessed in the exercise: the student experience, which covers teaching the whole wraparound support given to students, and student outcomes, which covers retention, progression and graduate outcomes.

Manchester Met secured Gold overall, with Gold for student experience and Silver for student outcomes.

Professor Andy Dainty, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education at Manchester Met, said: “We are delighted to have achieved an overall Gold outcome. This is a fantastic result for a University of our size and diversity, and for this assessment to conclude that our student experience is outstanding is testament to the hard work of everyone at the University.

“The rating is another major recognition for the excellent education we deliver, coming after this year’s brilliant NSS results which ranked us as 30th in the UK.

“This outcome demonstrates what we can achieve working together and I know through drive and ambition we can to build on this great success.”

The outcomes from TEF 2023 will last for four years from December 2023 until August 2027.
