Quality of RTP Modules

How do I know that the courses are of high quality? How is the quality of RTP courses monitored?
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. These include ESRC 1+3 programmes within the North West Doctoral Training Centre in the following departments and institutes:
Applied Social Science; Educational Research; Geography (in the Faculty of Science & Technology); History;p Division of Health Research (in the Faculty of Health & Medicine); Linguistics & English Language; Management School; Mathematics and Statistics (in the Faculty of Science & Technology); Politics, Philosophy & Religion; Psychology (in the Faculty of Science & Technology); Sociology
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, Uta Papen, explaining your concern or complaint. If after discussion, you are still dissatisfied, you may approach the Dean of the Faculty, Professor Tony McEnery, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
