A gold-rated University
We are proud to have been recognised as a gold-rated University by the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). This framework has been introduced by the Government and aims to recognise and reward excellent learning and teaching. Based on the evidence available, the TEF Panel judged 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?
Huddersfield is first in England for professionally qualified teaching staff
Here at Huddersfield, you'll be taught by some of the best lecturers in the country. The University is number one in England for the proportion of staff with teaching qualifications (HEFCE, Dec 2016).
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.
For the past nine years, we've been the UK's leading university for National Teaching Fellowships too, which rate Britain's best lecturers.
It’s all part of our ongoing drive for teaching excellence, which helps our students to achieve great things too.
*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.
