Our teaching was rated as excellent by the Higher Education Funding Council for England in their assessment of teaching quality in UK universities. Particular attention is paid to developing generic learning skills in addition to specific subject knowledge. We believe that attention to these skills is one reason why our graduates are so attractive to potential employers.
