The University of Law awarded Gold ranking in first Teaching Excellence Framework

London, 23 June 2017 – The University of Law (ULaw) has today been awarded a gold ranking in the Government led Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). The TEF panel assessed that ULaw delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students. It is of the highest quality found in the UK.

The statement of findings taken from the HEFCE website sets out the reasons for the TEF panel decision, including that ULaw has established strong links to employers and the legal profession; course design and assessment practices that ensure that all students are challenged to achieve their full potential; the provision of many personalised development opportunities for students; and a culture of professional practice and teaching excellence which is embedded with academic staff continuing involvement in professional practice.

The TEF is a new scheme developed by the Department for Education in England. It aims to recognise and reward excellent learning and teaching in addition to existing national quality requirements for universities, colleges, and other higher education providers.

The awards are decided by an independent TEF panel of experts, including academics, students, and employer representatives. The provider’s undergraduate teaching is assessed against ten criteria which cover teaching quality, learning environment, and student outcomes [1].

Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice-Chancellor and CEO at The University of Law, said:

“Our students are smart and ambitious and rightly demand the highest standard of teaching, so we are delighted to receive the TEF gold standard. The award is testament to our tutors, all of whom are qualified solicitors or barristers, together with our teaching approach, which focuses on equipping our graduates with the skills they need and employers want. This award builds on our success of last year, when we were voted first for student satisfaction, teaching, academic support and learning resources in the National Student Survey 2016 [2].”

ULaw’s courses include a fully integrated employability service to maximise students’ employment prospects.
