The award also reflects a high level of student satisfaction indicating a positive and enriching learning environment, with a curriculum that is future-ready for the rapidly evolving music industry. In addition to this, the partnerships and collaborations we’ve built within the industry for over 25 years have also been acknowledged. We’ve been working with many major brands and companies within the music sector to provide our students with ample networking opportunities, connections and experience to ensure they are confident, prepared and ready to begin a successful career in their chosen field.

What is TEF?

The Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes Framework (TEF) was introduced by the government in England in 2017 to assess and recognise the teaching standards of universities and colleges nationwide. TEF is awarded by the Office for Students (OfS) which are the independent regulator for higher education in England, ensuring that every student has a fulfilling experience of higher education that enriches their lives and careers.
