100% satisfaction for International Relations course
Dr Rachel Julian, Course Leader, said: “This is a great indicator of the time, passion and energy the whole course team put into their teaching, and of how much the students enjoy and participate in the course. It's a challenging time to be teaching on global issues, but I think this result shows that students and staff really care about learning and about the challenges we face. We're delighted with the news, especially as we get ready for a new year."
External examiners commented that the group have shown good innovation in providing varied and interesting assessments across the degree, and praised the team for the depth of feedback.
