Reflecting on this students' feedback,  the Head of the School Dr Steven Russell, had this to say:

"We are delighted that our students, who are are a committed bunch and a delight to teach, have expressed such positive sentiments about our teaching and the courses they have taken.  Their very good degree results - nearly 80% were awarded a First or Upper Second Class (2:1) Honours degree - reflect their hard work of course, while their great student experience is also testimony to the work and dedication of my academic colleagues in the School who invest time in delivering high quality teaching, and personal supervision and guidance to the students. We will work to continue this high level of performance".
