WHY CHOOSE UEA?


WE EXCEL IN TEACHING

The university was awarded a gold ranking in The Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in 2017. TEF is the Government’s new method of assessing the quality of teaching delivered by higher education providers.

The voluntary rankings rate institutions gold, silver or bronze and they are designed to give students better information to help them decide what and where to study. One of TEF’s key components is the annual National Student Survey (NSS), which gathers undergraduates’ opinions about their course.
