Warwick Economists Gain 5th Perfect Teaching Quality Score

Originally published 19 January 2001

Teaching quality inspectors have awarded the University of Warwick's Department of Economics a perfect score of 24 points out of 24 for the quality of teaching. This is the University of Warwick's fifth perfect score of 24 points out of 24 (the other departments to gain this score being Sociology, Theatre Studies, Physics and Warwick's Education Departments (Continuing Education, CELTE, and the Institute of Education).

The inspectors particularly praised the fact the department's teaching drew strength from its staff's extensive world renowned academic research, which they noted was of a "high international standard".

Researchers from Warwick's Economics Department are frequently quoted in some of the most influential business press and television such as The Financial Times, The Money Programme, and The Economist magazine. The last month alone has seen extensive articles in such media by Warwick Economics professors such as Professor Ian Walker (on the National lottery bids), Professor Lord Skidelsky on the life of John Keynes, and Professor Andrew Oswald (on oil prices and the US and world economy).
