Student satisfaction at record high

5 December 2016

Cardiff University’s School of Welsh has scored 100% for overall student satisfaction in the 2016 Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES).

The results relate to the School's MA Welsh and Celtic Studies programme.

The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey is a national online survey which evaluates seven thematic areas: the quality of teaching and learning, engagement, assessment and feedback, dissertation, organisation and management, learning resources, and skills development.

This year the School saw an increase in six thematic areas and received the maximum score possible (100%) in the following areas: Dissertation and Assessment and Feedback. A score of 95% was achieved for Teaching and Learning (a 20% increase on 2015) and 98% in the field of Organisation and Management.

The School’s consistency and quality is clear when compared against the results of the University as a whole. This year the School’s results are among the best of the University.

Dr Siwan Rosser, Director of the MA Welsh and Celtic Studies programme, said: “These fantastic results are testament to the quality and innovation of our postgraduate programme, and to the excellence of our research environment and teaching.

“Student feedback is very important in ensuring that we maintain the quality of our courses, and we will continue to develop our provision and the teaching experience of our students.”
