THE rates Bristol sixth best in Europe for teaching excellence

Press release issued: 12 July 2018

The University of Bristol has been ranked sixth in Europe in a new league table published this week by the Times Higher Education (THE) that focuses on institutions’ teaching and learning environments.

This year, for the first time, in addition to its analysis of European research universities, the THE’s data team has pioneered a new teaching-led ranking for European countries.

The THE’s top-ranked European universities by teaching excellence rankings strive to uncover richer and deeper insights into global higher education and are comprised from a number of metrics grouped into resources, engagement, outcomes and environment.

At its heart are the results of the THE European Student Survey, which account for 50 percent of the rankings.

Bristol was rated particularly highly in the areas of resources, highlighting the quality of our learning environment, and student outcomes, incorporating our reputation for teaching excellence, graduation rate and skills development.

Professor Hugh Brady, Vice-Chancellor and President of the University of Bristol, said: “It is gratifying to see Bristol rank so highly in this new league table from the THE.

“It is also testament to the hard work and dedication of our teaching staff in providing our students with the very best learning environments that are now ranked among some of the best in Europe.”
