Feedback

We no longer ask for individual student feedback but we do seek feedback from the Professional Studies Advisers (PSAs)/Part 3 Course Leaders. A selection of the PSAs’ feedback in 2016 includes:

“Thank you for your session with the students. They were very complimentary and it certainly got them thinking.”

“Very many thanks for delivering such an excellent presentation to the M Arch students once again, we and the students very much value your kind support.”

“Feedback from the students has been enthusiastic and very positive, I do hope you will be able to join us again next year.”

“Thank you very much for coming to talk to us yesterday about ARB requirements and expectation. I found your seminar really interesting and useful.” – from a student
