The results of England's teaching excellence framework (TEF) will be published on 22 June, it has been confirmed.

The date was confirmed in a letter sent to participating institutions on 16 June by Madeleine Atkins, chief executive of the Higher Education Funding Council for England.

Universities will be informed on 19 June whether they have achieved a gold, silver or bronze award in the TEF, Professor Atkins said.

All other UK funding bodies and the Department for Education will be informed shortly after institutions are made aware of their own result, while a full set of awards will sent to all participating providers under embargo on 21 June.

The TEF results were originally due to be released on 14 June, but this was postponed by Hefce owing to uncertainty caused by the result of the UK general election.

The framework will rate universities’ teaching as "gold", "silver" or "bronze", based on metrics for student satisfaction, retention and graduate employment, and submissions made by institutions.

Some of the UK’s most prestigious universities are expected to be among those rated as bronze, an outcome that could limit their ability to raise tuition fees.
