The quality of our teaching is consistently commended.

Newcastle University has a long tradition of excellence in teaching, recognised in many internal and external reviews, surveys and assessments, but also importantly by our own students.

We are proud to have achieved the best possible outcome - a Gold Award - in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

Based on the evidence available, the TEF Panel judged that Newcastle University delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students. It is of the highest quality found in the UK.
