Survey feedback

You said: you wanted more applied learning opportunities

  • We’ve developed work placement modules across the school, partnering with employers and offering work experience opportunities for students across a wide range of our programmes.
  • Many of our programmes now have a compulsory final-year project to give students the opportunity to engage in more ‘real world’ research and practical projects that can translate into practical skills that employers value.

You said: you wanted more transparent and consistent assessment criteria and more timely feedback of marks and comments

  • We have adopted a department-wide template for both coursework assessment and feedback which will be visible to students via Moodle.
  • We have adjusted staff workload management and assessment timings to consistently meet and improve on our existing targets for marking turnaround.

You said: you wanted to be able to submit module feedback electronically

  • We’ve now introduced an online feedback system that makes the process simpler and more transparent.
