MORE praise has been heaped on Huddersfield University.
It has been put top of the league for teaching quality among all the "new universities" in the North.
Figures published in the Times Higher Education Supplement show the university performing nationally second only to Kingston University in Surrey among former polytechnics when it comes to the quality of its teaching.
The result follows the conferment of the highest possible grades in a Government institutional audit this year.
All this week the Times has published daily league tables for individual subjects.
Huddersfield University appeared among the top 20 for social work and food science.
In the North, only York (ranked second highest in the UK) and Sheffield universities - both older institutions - score higher than Huddersfield in the teaching quality section of the Times tables.
Overall nationally, Huddersfield is ranked 23rd out of 111 universities for teaching quality.
Among West Yorkshire universities Leeds is ranked at 60, Bradford at 81 and Leeds Metropolitan is 88th.
Also, last month Huddersfield University's tourism and hospitality degrees came third nationally in league tables in The Guardian newspaper.
Prof Tim Boatswain, the university's pro-vice chancellor for external relations, said: "We are delighted with the teaching quality results.
"They are a testimony to the hard work and energy of our talented staff and the dedication and commitment of our students," he said.
"We always knew we would perform well on teaching quality. It has long been a particular strength.
"But to receive the highest ratings for a post-1992 university in the whole of the North of England is indeed an accolade."
