Economics Quality Gives Warwick Perfect Score

The University of Warwick has scored top marks for its teaching yet again following a visit to the economics department by inspectors.

It is the fifth department to get a perfect score of 24 out of 24 for the quality of tutorials and lectures.

Other departments to hit the maximum have been Sociology, Theatre Studies, Physics and Warwick's Institute of Education.

The inspectors praised the fact the calibre of the staff’s world-renowned academic research, which they noted was of a "high international standard".

Researchers from the department frequently crop up in the some of the most influential business press and television such as The Financial Times, The Money Programme, and The Economist magazine.

The last month alone has seen extensive articles in such media by Warwick Economics professors such as Professor Ian Walker (on the National lottery bids), Professor Lord Skidelsky on the life of John Keynes, and Professor Andrew Oswald (on oil prices and the US and world economy).

University spokesman Peter Dunn said the verdict by the inspectors was another example of Warwick’s status as one of the best universities in the country.
