Professor Nicholas Mackintosh, Department Head, welcomes the TQA result.

The Department of Experimental Psychology has received full marks in its Teaching Quality Assessment (TQA), scoring a remarkable 24 marks out of 24.

The TQA assessment includes analysis of the institution's own self-assessment and of statistical indicators relating to the institution, as well as visits by a team of external assessors. It results in a series of subject specific reports published by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).

Professor Nicholas Mackintosh, Head of the Department of Experimental Psychology, commented: "We are obviously delighted by this result. It proves that it is possible to combine first-class research with excellent teaching, and shows that all members of the Department work hard to provide the best possible education for our students."

The University has had an outstanding record in the TQA process since it was introduced in 1993. Both the effectiveness of the College supervision system, and the links between high quality research and teaching, have been noted repeatedly in the TQA reports on Cambridge.
