McGill University recently released a table based on the student’s response to the quality of education in 2005, 2010 and 2015. Let’s take a closer look at it.
Although the teaching quality has improved, it has not been that big of an advance as one would have hoped for. Currently, the teaching quality stands at 78, a six-point improvement over 2010’s data which isn’t that impressive especially when we consider the fact that the rating was 74 in 2005.
The Library resources section shows stagnation in its ratings, with its current rating 87 and its previous ratings were 88 and 86 for 2010 and 2005 respectively. When compared to the teaching quality though, it is noticeable that although teaching quality and library resources have stood still for the last ten years, the library resources department had a better average overall.
Unlike the above two sections, student services have shown a massive positive spike in its ratings for the years 2010 and 2015 which is an indicator that the staff in-charge of student services is doing a pretty good job.
The range of modules department has been the least impressive however with this section showing a dip in reviews from 39 in 2005 to 25 in 2015. This is hugely disappointing as not only was the average low, it still dipped further in the following years showing gross negligence in this section.
Finally, we have the Sports and Social facilities department which consistently scored 65 in all three surveys which are not great but not bad either.
