The Faculty of Science and Technology’s department of Life Sciences has recorded an outstanding performance in the 2016 National Student Survey (NSS), with the Human Nutrition BSc achieving an exceptional score of 100%.

Dr Ihab Tewfik who is a Senior Lecturer in the Life Sciences department said:

“Students’ satisfaction in the Human Nutrition BSc course is down to a dedicated qualified team who are enthusiastic about their subject, are able to inspire and motivate students and always have time to listen and help with any issues students may have.”   

“Course organisation/structure plays a pivotal part in student satisfaction. The Human Nutrition BSc course team regularly meet to discuss and monitor the delivery of the course throughout the academic year. These meetings explore means to more effective and efficient use of contact time with students and the merging and streamlining of assessments, including practical and tutorials.”

Dr Ihab Tewfik also went on to add:

“The BSc Human Nutrition course team believes that it is necessary that assessments address topical issues for reasons that range from stimulating student engagement/interest to professional development and improving employability.

The course team has always put the students first when providing feedback and there have been occasions when some students have needed a lot more feedback than others. Collective effort in terms of timely feedback is very important as well as resolving any timetabling issues.
 
Over the last few years we have given students our undivided attention and guidance. Despite the constant staff changes, the team was able to manage their time and meet deadlines to ensure that the level of support (for teaching, learning and assessment) is not only maintained but is sustainable.”

Places are still available to join the Faculty of Science and Technology undergraduate courses this September.
