Archaeology scores 22 in Subject Review

The Department of Archaeology achieved the excellent score of 22 out of 24 in its Subject Review held on Thursday 25 October.

The Department scored 3 in Curriculum Design, Content and Organisation; 4 in Teaching, Learning and Assessment; 4 in Student Progression and Achievement; 4 in Student Support and Guidance; 3 in Quality Management and Enhancement, and 4 in Learning Resources.

Dr Mark Horton, Head of Department, said: 'Obviously, we are extremely pleased with this result, which reflects how well the Department works as a team. The Archaeology review was the only one to include lifelong learning, and the reviewers particularly praised the Department's inclusiveness and widening access policy. This is a vindication of the University's decision to mainstream continuing education.'

Gill Clarke, Director of the Teaching Support Unit, said: 'Archaeology was the 39th teaching review for the University and the last visit under the current system. I'm very pleased for the Department who worked hard to achieve such an excellent result. This is very good news for the University because it means our average score is also excellent.'
