National student survey (NSS) 2020 success

Our students commented:

“The course allowed for incorporated field trips throughout the three years without any additional expense, thus allowing for unforgettable experiences and application of certain skills in the real world.”

“The staff were very enthusiastic about their specific interests/research areas, as well as lovely people in general, which in turn resulted in high-quality aid and/or feedback in regards to assignments. Modules across the course were intellectually stimulating, and therefore effectively communicated the fascinating geological aspects of the Earth, as well as highlighting specific controversies/debates that are still ongoing in the geoscience community.”

“I have really enjoyed my time at Edge Hill University. The department have been supportive and I have received positive and useful feedback from assignments that I have completed over the last three years. The lecturers have helped me to develop a wide variety of skills such as GIS skills, statistical analysis, fieldwork, lab work, report writing as well as a multitude of other transferable skills. I also appreciate the emphasis on future careers, with careers week being extremely useful in developing interview skills and increasing my skills for potential assessment centre situations.”

“The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful regarding both academic content, and providing feedback and advice on assignments. The staff are also very friendly, approachable and caring, and are always willing to provide help and advice.”

“The learning opportunities available to students are extensive as the student opportunity fund can be applied for and used to further one’s own education. Additionally, there are varieties of educational trips within each course that also provide great learning opportunities.”
