" The teacher teaching HR was amazing - I really liked his way of teaching and making the students participate actively in the classroom.

" The teacher in human resource management was really good! Enthusiastic and skilled.

" My favourite part of the module has to be John Mitchell's work. Considering this is only his second year teaching the material, I was extremely impressed with the quality of the teaching. He is engaging as a lecturer and made the content incredibly interesting. He deserves credit for the effort and enthusiasm with which he taught this term.

Recruitment and Selection
" Thank you very much for today's session on Recruitment and Selection. It was eye-opening, by which I mean it opened my eyes to what I must call my own complacency about my ability to be fair in the hiring process. It was immensely exciting (and therapeutic) to be led to re-think what I thought I knew. I loved it.
Thank you again for providing one of the best learning experiences I've had in a very long time.
