We’re Gold

We’ve been rated Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), awarded summer 2017, by the Higher Education Funding Council for England for ‘delivering consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for students’. Only a small handful of universities and university level providers have been ranked Gold.


Supportive, caring, and outstanding teaching

You will be supported in your degree by specialists in their field with a passion for their subject, with the time to provide you with the confidence and support you may need to succeed in your studies. In 2015, we were awarded the UK quality mark for higher education (QAA).


Small tutorial sizes

You won’t be lost in the crowd with us. Our small class sizes mean we get to know you as individuals. This enables us to offer better engagement in tutorials, more opportunities for your voice to be heard, and peer discussion.
