UWE has been awarded gold status in the latest UK government rankings for Higher Education providers
The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has been awarded gold status in the latest UK Government rankings for higher education providers.
UWE Bristol has been given the highest possible rating in the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) 2018. Gold-standard institutions have provision that is consistently outstanding and of the highest quality found in the sector.
Advancing from the silver rating awarded in 2017, the University has been praised by assessors for outstanding graduate employability outcomes and successful approaches to personalised learning.
The framework, led by the Office for Students (OfS), measures the performance of all UK universities and higher education providers based on a wide range of factors including graduate employability, National Student Survey (NSS) results and learning environment.
The University is ranked in the top quartile of all higher education providers in the UK and is among only five universities in the South West to hold gold TEF status.
Villa College established a strong partnership with UWE in 2015 to deliver its programmes in Villa College. Up to now Villa College has produced over 150 graduates from UWE programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
