Department of Geography and Development Studies 1st place for 'student satisfaction'
We spoke to several students about their experiences at GDS and they responded with the following:
"I’m thinking of doing a career in planning… the New York fieldtrip has increased my interest in this vastly, I can’t wait to get into that field of work!"
"I liked the fieldtrip to Naples and all the assessments that went with it because they were so different."
[Spain fieldtrip] – "The work is hard. There’s a lot to take in and genuine enthusiasm is needed but, if done right, it’s the ultimate experience."
"It really bonded us as a group."
"The staff (tutors & lecturers) were very helpful and supportive."
"Assessment was well worked. Had help from the tutors and felt like we knew what we had to do."
