Students express their greatest enjoyment in our courses in relation to the following aspects of the way we teach:
Use of external speakers and practitioners: ' variety of contributors was good. Lots of opportunities to ask questions/discuss. Enough practical things to break up class lectures.'
Field visits and practical work: students really value the opportunity to be out of the classroom, learning in new ways and hearing from on-site professionals: 'nice to get out a classroom' ...a 'well organised with timekeeping and comfortable transport. Excellent input from guest lecturers.'
Regular seminars: 'great at providing a link between course contents and the real world.' The seminar series has given students the chance to hear from, and discuss issues with such eminent personalities as Baroness Margaret Ford (Chair of English Partnerships and Irvine Bay URC), Jim Mackinnon (Chief Planner for Scotland), John MacBean and Mike Buchan (Jones Lang LaSalle) and Jan Bebbington (Professor of Accounting and Sustainable Development, University of St Andrews).
Placements and links to employers: 'presentations (from employers) are useful in terms of being able to gain an idea of the jobs market and what we can expect in terms of pay and conditions.'
Facilities: students regularly use the REPR Resource Room including computing facilities, graphic printers, discussion space, and additional material and resources.
