Universities have fared better than colleges in the second round of the teaching excellence framework.

Some 32 per cent of the 134 higher education institutions that entered the second year of the teaching excellence framework were awarded gold status, according to the results of the exercise published on 22 June.

The universities of Oxford and Cambridge were both awarded gold, defined as “delivering consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students” and “of the highest quality found in the UK”. Two alternative providers—the University of Buckingham and the University of Law—also received gold awards, along with smaller providers such as Falmouth University and the Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts.
