The University of Roehampton has been recognised with a silver award in the Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) for delivering high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for its students.
This further highlights our commitment to providing an excellent experience and education that enables our students to prepare themselves for a successful and fulfilling career in a rapidly changing world.
The University was commended by the review panel for the fact that most full-time Roehampton students achieve excellent outcomes. The university performed particularly well against the benchmark for rates of progression to highly skilled employment or further study. Other feedback included:
- Support for students in gaining work experience and engagement with employers results in high rates of progression to highly skilled employment and positive outcomes over longer career timelines.
- Effective programmes of staff development and institutional culture of reward and recognition for teaching excellence.
- The improvement in the attainment of black, Asian, and minority-ethnic students.
- Underpinning high levels of student engagement are the personalisation of timetables and specific support for under-represented student groups.
Professor Jean-Nol Ezingeard, the Vice-Chancellor, said, “This is an excellent result for us and a real testament to the hard work and dedication of colleagues who teach and support our students.” Roehampton University is a university that prides itself on helping all students, regardless of their background, to develop the confidence, knowledge and adaptability they need for a successful graduate career and a fulfilling life. We are delighted that the work colleagues undertake daily is now reflected, to a greater extent, in the results of the TEF.
The TEF awards are made against six measures, including how many students continue their course from one year to the next; graduate-level employment outcomes; and students’ views about their experience gathered in the annual National Student Survey.
