Dundee to enter Teaching Excellence Framework
Published On Thu 26 Jan 2017 by Roddy Isles
The University of Dundee will take part in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the voluntary assessment exercise initiated by the UK Government to assess the quality of teaching and learning in universities and other higher education institutions across the United Kingdom.
We join a number of other Scottish universities and a substantial majority of the HE sector elsewhere in the UK in choosing to enter the TEF.
We are a University that has shown – as acknowledged in our being named Scottish University of the Year for the past two years by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide – that it is possible to combine world-class research with outstanding learning, teaching and student experience. Together these enable us to achieve our goal to transform lives, locally and globally.
We recruit students from across the UK and, as one of the world’s Top 200 universities, internationally. TEF will give all prospective and current students a clear sign of the quality of the teaching and student experience they can expect from Dundee.
We value our close relationship with our students, which is evident at every level of University activity, and have developed our submission to TEF in partnership with Dundee University Students’ Association. Taking part in the TEF is a clear indication to our students, our staff and the wider world of the value we place on teaching as well as research at the University.
