Teaching Excellence Framework

The Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) is periodic exercise undertaken at institution-level by the Office for Students (OfS). A range of data are used, including:

  • National Student Survey (NSS) outcomes
  • Student retention figures
  • The employment destinations of graduates and their income

These combined with a written submission are assessed by a panel and given an overall rating. The University of Oxford was first assessed in the TEF in 2017, receiving a Gold award. It is next due to enter in 2020.

Further information on the TEF can be found on the OfS website

The University's data, submission and the TEF Panel's report can be found here.
