British Universities And Colleges To Get Olympic-Style Ratings

British universities and colleges will be graded on gold, silver and bronze system to highlight good and poor teaching alongside details of the average salary earned by its graduates. For the very first time, this will allow potential students to compare courses, not just the institutions.

The initiative aims to “reward excellent teaching” and “expose poor quality teaching” with a new rating system for universities and colleges.

The universities will be held to account for the quality of their teaching, learning environment and graduate outcomes.

The Department for Education (DfE) launched a ten-week public consultation into the design of the new framework, which will run alongside a pilot scheme at 50 universities and colleges.

Among those taking part is the University of Cambridge, Imperial College London, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), De Montfort University and the Open University.

The new framework, to be fully introduced in the 2019-2020 academic year.

“Individual subjects at different U.K. universities and colleges will be rated gold, silver or bronze by a new tool feeding in official data on teaching quality and future career prospects.”

Much like commercial price comparison websites, young people will be able to type in their course and then rank the results from best to worst.
