Yesterday was our "validation event" for our PR degree at Edge Hill University. Any academics reading this will realise how important this is. We had been working on plans for improvements to the degree, but obviously everything has to be checked out and go through quality screening, and that includes bringing in external experts to challenge the plans.
It was a long and tiring day but I am glad to say we got approval for the new and improved version and will be rolling it out from September this year. It'll give students at Edge Hill who are studying PR an even better deal so I'm really pleased.
(Of course this does mean I now have to do some detailed writing for the new modules although one of them is in my specialist area of the voluntary sector)
