Great results for STS students
9 June 2012
Congratulations to our graduating students!
In early June, the STS Board of Examiners completed its deliberations for the 2011-12 session. Our provision results for the finalists:
- 57% proposed for first class degrees
- 43% proposed for upper second class degrees
This is a fantastic result. We're proud of everyone. Some of the dissertations struck everyone as suitable for publication.
What the experts say
About the programmes, our external examiners told us:
- "the feedback the students get is excellent"
- "particularly impressed by the pedagogy"
- "When you put it all together, there really is nothing like it"
Another record-breaking year
STS has had a busy year; we continue to grow. We broke records last year in our teaching statistics. This year, it's another record.
- 888 student enrollments
- 34 modules, 5 of which are new
- 2383 pieces of assessment marked
All this done by a staff of only 12 tutors and 3 administrators.
Next year, we're aiming higher. We'll have new staff, new modules, and improvements throughout the department. We're evening going to get a bit of painting done in the department.
