The University of Lincoln has been awarded a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

The TEF was introduced by the Government to help better inform students' choices about what and where to study, raise the esteem of teaching, recognise and reward excellent teaching and better meet the needs of employers, business, industry and the professions.

Commenting on the award, professor Mary Stuart, vice chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: "We are delighted to have been awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework. We already pride ourselves on the education, experiences and opportunities we offer our students.

"Our TEF Gold award is further evidence of our exciting teaching, great support for students and excellent employment outcomes. It is testament to the talents and endeavours not just of our teaching staff but of everyone who makes up our academic community, including our students who so enthusiastically embrace the opportunities and challenges presented to them."

Universities can be awarded a TEF ranking of gold, silver or bronze and are determined by an independent panel of experts, including academics, students and employer representatives.
