A gold-rated University

The University of Huddersfield achieved a Gold Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) award in June 2017. This award expired in June 2021 and the scheme is currently being revised. We look forward to being reassessed when the awards are re-opened in 2023.

The award recognised that the University of Huddersfield delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students. It is of the highest quality found in the UK.

Why choose Huddersfield?

  1. We are joint-first in the UK for the proportion of professionally-qualified teaching staff. (HESA 2021)
  2. We're unique in the fact that all our permanent teaching staff* have, or are completing, doctorates. This expertise, together with our teaching credentials, means that students here learn from knowledgeable and well-qualified teachers and academics who are at the forefront of their subject area.
  3. We're second in the country for National Teaching Fellowships. Think of them like the teaching Oscars – they rate the UK’s best lecturers. It’s part of our drive for teaching excellence, which helps you achieve great things too. (2021 data)

*Permanent staff, after probation: some recently appointed colleagues will only obtain recognition in the months after their arrival in Huddersfield, once they have started teaching; research degrees applies to those on contracts of more than half-time.
