perspectives of current students
Perspectives of current students

Choice of modules reduced because lecturers on research leave

They\'d rather be doing their research than teaching

My research project was really brilliant

Several of my modules offered many research opportunities

Staff stuck in their own world of research

Friendly and enthusiastic staff who are actively involved in research

Very much enjoyed being part of a team of researchers in my final year

Better at research but don’t make good lecturers

NSS 2010
