HUDDERSFIELD University staff have welcomed a top-notch inspection report.
A Government quality audit of five academic areas gave the university the highest scores available under the recently re-modelled scheme.
The draft report says "broad confidence" can be placed in the university's academic programmes and the standards of its degrees and other qualifications.
It also says the university's courses are well-managed and of qood quality.
The Quality Assurance Agency carried out an audit in five academic disciplines this month.
They were psychology, music, business studies, accountancy and chemistry.
The report said the standards of student achievement in the programmes was "appropriate" and the quality of learning opportunities available to students was "suitable".
These are the highest outcomes available under the quality audit scheme.
Phil Williams, the university's head of public relations, said: "We understand the report will particularly praise good practice.
"This includes the way we arrange student inductions, provide supervision and tutorial support and focus on student requirements.
"The auditors were also impressed with our robust review and quality assurance.
"The outcome is a real boost and a vote of confidence for our academic and student services staff and confirms the quality of the courses at the university."
