The University of York has been ranked 9th out of more than 240 institutions for its teaching excellence.

The university was awarded the title in the Times Higher Education Europe Teaching Rankings, which captured responses from 30,000 students in more than 10 European countries.

The ranking follows on from receiving a Gold Award in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

Commenting on the rankings, Professor John Robinson, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Teaching, Learning and Students, said: "We are delighted to be 9th in the Times Higher Education Europe Teaching Rankings 2018."

"This is a well-deserved testimony to the excellence of our staff, our students and our programmes of learning."

"There are many different ways of measuring teaching quality and none of them is perfect. But we aim to be strong across the board."

"The THE accolade stacks alongside others - our high performance in student surveys, our TEF Gold Award, the success of our students in gaining graduate level jobs - and confirms that York is a leading place to study, not just within the UK, but across Europe."
