Glamorgan's History Division tops the League for Student Satisfaction

Glamorgan's History Division was placed joint first in Wales in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. Now, the Times Good University Guide 2010 has ranked the division first among Welsh history departments for student satisfaction. This is based on our third-year students' responses to the National Student Survey, which rated the history programme on teaching, feedback, organisation and personal development.

The Good University Guide put satisfaction with our degree programme 22nd in the UK, and first among all universities in Wales and the Welsh border region:
