Teaching excellence at the University of Reading
The University of Reading is committed to pursuing academic excellence while offering an outstanding experience for all our students.
Reading has been awarded Silver in the national trial of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). The award is for delivering high quality teaching and learning coupled with excellent outcomes for our students, and for consistently exceeding the rigorous national quality requirements for UK higher education. The TEF Panel was particularly complimentary of our work to support students to achieve excellent outcomes.
“Very high proportions continue with their studies and progress to employment or further study, and to highly skilled employment.”
