Module satisfaction survey

The figures below are taken from a survey of students who sat the exam/completed the end-of-module assessment for the October 2016 presentation of S350. The survey was carried out in 2017.

75 students (a response rate of 27.6%) responded to the survey covering what they thought of 10 aspects of the module.

Please note that if the percentage of students who responded to this module survey is below 30% and/or the number of responses is below 23 it means that only a small proportion of students provided feedback and their views as shown here may not be fully representative of all students who studied the module.

Faculty comment: "The module team warmly thanks all the respondents for their feedback and comments. The vast majority of respondents are clearly satisfied with their study experience and the support provided by their tutor; coped with the workload; and would recommend the module to other students. The following student comments captures some widespread views: ""I loved the student conference, it really helped to understand how other students viewed my work and enhanced my communication skills dramatically" and "I really liked this module as it gave you the freedom (within certain parameters) to explore your own interests in cutting edge science. I found this exciting and have continued to do this in real life. S350 has given me a new hobby.""
