Quality of RTP Modules

The Faculty Research Training Programme has run successfully for many years, and are widely recognised, in conjunction with relevant more specialised courses, as being of suitable quality for the receipt of students with research studentships from a range of funding sources. 

Each module is subject to a student evaluation/feedback exercise. At the end of each academic year, as part of the Research Training Programme Annual Review, staff teaching on the RTP discuss and review the year’s programme and the modules and courses that were taught. Suggestions are made about improvements and changes for the following year. The RTP Director maintains regular contact with students and with colleagues who teach on the programme to ensure that all modules and short courses that are part of the RTP meet students’ needs and offer teaching of a high quality.

What happens if I have a complaint or concern about any aspect of the training programme?

If it is something that you cannot resolve with the appropriate course tutor or convenor, you should approach the RTP Director, Basil Germond, explaining your concern or complaint. If after discussion, you are still dissatisfied, you may approach the Faculty's Director of Postgraduate Research, Professor Christopher Partridge, email c.partridge@lancaster.ac.uk.
