[22 MAR 99] COVENTRY UNIVERSITY PRESS RELEASE
Report Gives Top Marks to Coventry Building Courses

Coventry University’s building courses have been rated as the fourth best in Britain by the Higher Education Funding Council’s Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) - and top in the country in the key category of teaching and learning.

The courses, which include building, construction management, surveying and architectural design technology, are taught in the University’s School of The Built Environment. They received a score of 22 points putting them fourth in the table of 41 Universities and colleges nationwide which were inspected over a two year period by the QAA for its ‘Building Provision in the UK’ report.

"Coming fourth overall in the UK is excellent news", said the School’s Deputy Dean Ray Hulse. "But just as exciting is the fact that in the key category of Teaching, Learning and Assessment looked at by the QAA, we actually came top in the UK, with 78 per cent of our activities in this area receiving the highest possible score.

"We feel this is particularly important as this area reflects the quality of teaching and the learning environment that we provide for our students - and what could be more important?", said Ray.

"Our overall results in this report reflect the quality of our staff and the teaching that they provide, coupled with the excellent resources and outstanding facilities that are available to our building students here at Coventry University", he concluded.
