Robert Gordon University (RGU) has been awarded a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). TEF is a Government initiative which helps assure a world-class higher education sector in the UK. It assesses, recognises and rewards the quality of undergraduate teaching across the country, using metrics including continuation rates, student satisfaction and employment outcomes.
RGU was praised for supporting students from all backgrounds to achieve outstanding outcomes and for their high levels of continuation rates and exceptional professional practice. The Gold rating was also awarded in recognition of RGU’s employability levels, with very high proportions of graduates progressing to skilled employment or further study, and a comprehensive range of opportunities for students to develop knowledge and skills that are most highly valued by employers.
RGU’s Principal, Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski, said: “Our Gold rating places RGU among the UK elite for quality teaching and learning. It demonstrates that our staff show an exceptional dedication to a high quality educational agenda and to an excellent student experience, alongside our commitment to widening access to the university. We place students and their graduate prospects at the top of our priorities, ensuring they achieve an industry-recognised qualification as well as a highly-valued skill set, and we warmly welcome being acknowledged for employability.”
