A first external review of the University of Gibraltar’s PhD research programme has found the University has taken very effective actions in relation to implementing quality management systems in its first year. Five topics related to Gibraltar form part of the PhD research programme which now moves into its second year.
The review, carried out by Professor Ros Taplin of the University of New South Wales in Australia, says the University’s Academic Board and the Research and Research Degree Committee have effectively monitored and implemented PhD Programme procedures and processes.
“Current PhD students’ and supervisors’ levels of satisfaction with arrangements are high,” reports Professor Taplin who is an internationally-recognised expert in doctoral education programmes and has successfully supervised over 20 PhD students from a range of disciplines including the pure sciences, social sciences, humanities and arts. With two PhDs, one in Science and another in the Visual Arts, she has over 180 peer-reviewed journal articles and extensive experience of working in industry.
Vice Chancellor Professor Daniella Tilbury, told the Chronicle, the university was delighted with the outcomes of the external review which confirmed the quality and value of the University of Gibraltar research degrees.
