Posted on 18 July 2018

The University of York has been ranked among the best institutions for teaching excellence in Europe.


York was ranked among the best institutions for teaching excellence in Europe.

York was ranked equal 9th out of more than 240 participating institutions in the Times Higher Education Europe Teaching Rankings.

The inaugural European Student survey captured detailed responses from 30,000 students in more than 10 European countries.

The ranking confirms York as a leading place to study and follows on from the recent Gold Award in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF).

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."
