Uni's Biology Department Gets Almost Perfect Results

The University of Warwick's Biological Sciences Department has received an almost perfect score, from a national inspection team, for the quality of its teaching. The department scored 23 points out of a possible maximum of 24.

The Higher Education Funding Council for England's Teaching Quality Assessment team particularly praised the Biological Sciences Department for: -

  • Its research led curriculum (NB Warwick is one of the UK's top 5 research universities)
  • "The strong emphasis on laboratory skills" within the department
  • The "excellent academic and pastoral support" for students
  • The emphasis on transferable skills, and the preparation of students for employment
