National Student Survey Results 2014
The School of History is delighted to see continuing improvement in the high overall satisfaction its students is at a record 94%, according to the results of the National Student Survey. This impressive result places the School third in London and fourth amongst Russell Group Universities. The 2014 National Student Survey (NSS) questioned UK undergraduates on various aspects of their student experience, including their overall satisfaction.
The NSS results also show that 97 per cent of students in the School were satisfied with their teaching, noting in particular the success of well-informed teachers in making History interesting.
Professor Miri Rubin, Head of the School of History, welcomed the results: 'As Head of School I am enormously proud of our brilliant historians who excel at turning their research into a rich teaching and learning experience. I am particularly aware of the administrative care - often unseen by students - which produces such successful results. Delighted as we are with these results, we will learn from the NSS how to make the QMUL History experience even more enjoyable'
Dr Harun Yilmaz writes for the BBC
Dr Harun Yilmaz writes a series of articles which explains how World War 1 influenced Azerbaijan. Dr Yilmaz explains how the deteriorating conditions of the Great War and the two consecutive revolutions in Russia in 1917 forced the first school for Muslim girls with secular and modern curriculum in the Muslim world to close its doors in Spring 1918. Ironically, the same conditions of the war and revolutions gave birth to the first republic and the first multi-party parliament of a predominantly Muslim and Turkic population in 1918.
