UNIVERSITY RECORDS HIGHEST EVER TEACHING SCORE

 

The University of Lincolnshire & Humberside has achieved its highest ever score in the latest Teaching Quality Review to be conducted on campus.

 

The university’s Psychology Department, which caters for students in both Lincoln and Hull, scored 21 points out of a possible 24 when it was assessed last week by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA).

 

A team of six inspectors spent the week observing lessons and facilities and talking to students and academics. The marks they awarded included:

 

·     a maximum score (four points) for teaching and learning

·     a maximum score (four points) for student progression

·     a maximum score (four points) for quality enhancement

·     three out four for learning resources, student guidance and curriculum development

 

The previous best mark awarded by the QAA to a department at ULH was a score of 20 out of 24 given to the Department of Food Science.
