School of Learning and Teaching programmes accredited for teaching excellence underpinned by research

20 Mar 2014

The College of Life Sciences is pleased to announce that the MSci Programmes in Biological and Physiological Sciences offered by its School of Learning and Teaching have been awarded interim accreditation by the Society of Biology. 

Degree accreditation by the Society of Biology acknowledges academic excellence in the biosciences, and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future. 

Dean of Learning and Teaching Professor David Coates said, “This is a very important endorsement of the new Curriculum towards which, we at the School of Learning and Teaching, have been working for the past few years. 

“The accreditation criteria require evidence that graduates have met defined learning outcomes, including gaining substantial research experience, and Interim accreditation recognises that the curriculum as well as student research experience are on track. We are looking forward to our first graduates in 2015/16 demonstrating their achievement of these outcomes.”
