Information & Communications voted the Best Department in the University by students.
The team, led by Acting Head Jonathan Willson, beat around 40 MMU departments in the inaugural I Love My Lecturer Awards hosted by the Student Union.
Around 1,000 students nominated their lecturers for efforts “beyond the call of duty” enhancing the experience of University.
Information and Communications was described as a “big happy family”, an “amazing course” and the home of “supportive academics” by students.
Collecting the award on behalf of the department, Jonathan said: “People often do not know what we offer, because we are social scientists teaching a technical subject.”
“But we are very successful and obviously good at what we do”.
Philosophy, described as “fantastic fun” and “inspiring” was nominated for ‘Best Course’, while there were two awards for the School of Law; Edwina Higgins (Outstanding Innovation in Teaching, Winner) and Cath Little (Best Personal Tutor, nominee).
