Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF)
Royal Holloway has been awarded Silver in the Office for Students (OfS) Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) assessment. TEF is a national scheme run by the OfS to assess the quality of learning and teaching in English universities and helps inform students’ choices about what and where to study.
Silver is awarded to those universities that provide very high-quality experiences and facilities that ensure all students are significantly challenged and supported in their studies. The feedback from the TEF assessors included many highlights, including the relationship between our research and research-informed teaching which has been ranked as outstanding.
