AUB is the UK’s number one specialist university for employability according to results released by Times Higher Education

AUB had already been awarded Gold status by the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), a new scheme introduced to recognise excellent teaching.

Now, according to the TEF Metrics ranking produced by Times Higher Education, AUB is the country’s top specialist university for employability.

Times Higher Education’s analysis used a range of “Z-scores” assigned to universities by Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) as part of the TEF assessment.

These were calculated by judging how each university performed in relation to the proportion of graduates in employment or further study, versus a benchmark value expected when taking into account factors including the particular cohort’s age, sex, ethnicity and entry qualifications – the higher the value the better.

For employability, AUB scored a Z-score of 10.44, ranking it the number one specialist university and fifth overall.
