Warwick named University of the Year for Teaching Quality

The University of Warwick has been recognised as the best university in the UK for teaching quality by The Good University Guide, the internationally respected British university rankings guide published by The Sunday Times.

We were also recognised as runner up University of the Year. These fantastic results follow on from positive National Student Survey (NSS) results earlier in the year.

These amazing results reflect the passion, talent, and work ethic of the whole Warwick community, so we’d like to say a big thank you to you all.

Speaking on our award, Stuart Croft, Vice Chancellor, said:

“This wonderful result is down to the tenacity, the integrity, and the sheer hard work of our entire Warwick community — in the face of unprecedented global disruption and difficulty.

Thank you to our students and staff who have pulled together this year, adapting to new ways of living, working, and learning, while continuing to provide the world-class teaching and research of which we are all so proud.”

The guide, which places Warwick as 8th in the UK overall, cites the University’s success in the 2021 National Student Survey (NSS) and its response to the Covid-19 pandemic as key reasons for its achievements in this year’s awards:

“Winner of our University of the Year for Teaching Quality award, Warwick has never been outside the top ten in our academic ranking and moves up two places this year. It landed our teaching prize, along with being runner-up for University of the Year, thanks to strong student endorsement of its Covid response, expressed through this year’s National Student Survey (NSS).”

The news follows the Guardian University Guide 2022 placing Warwick 6th in the UK, a rise of two places, and Times Higher Education placing Warwick 78th in the world.

We know that it hasn’t been an easy year for you or our teachers, and we are so proud that these results recognise not only the effort put in by staff to help you to thrive but also your resilience as you embraced the new experience of blended learning and socially distanced campus life. Thank you again for your feedback and contribution throughout the past year.
