Student Feedback

The Department highly values student feedback and is committed to addressing student concerns.

Students are able to provide feedback in several ways, including through:

  • Module evaluation forms completed at the end of each module studied
  • Direct communication with staff
  • Formal academic committees, most notably the Staff Student Liaison Committee (SSLC) which seeks to enhance the student learning experience
  • The National Student Survey (NSS) which students complete at the end of their final year, reflecting back over their time with us
