Buxton Degrees' Top Five Position In National League Table
Date posted: 6 June 2013
Degree subjects taught at the University of Derby's Buxton campus have been rated in the top five nationally in The Guardian University Guide 2014.
The table, published on June 4 (2013), rates degree subjects on a range of criteria including students' levels of satisfaction with the course and with the teaching they receive, staff student ratios and the career achievements of graduates after six months.
The University's degrees rated fifth under the subject category 'Tourism, transport and travel' include Hospitality and Culinary Arts, Outdoor, Adventure and Countryside Management, Events Management, Travel and Tourism Management, and Joint Honours programmes.
The University of Derby Buxton's Strategic Director, Dr Peter Dewhurst, said: "Our top five ranking is testimony to the hard work of an outstanding team of staff who dedicate their efforts to supporting our students. We work hard to ensure that our students receive the best possible academic input and high quality work experience opportunities which, together, help to maximise their career prospects.
"We will use this external recognition as a springboard for a series of innovations that should help to consolidate and even build on our top five ranking in the years to come."
