Teaching accolades

  • "He has a unique ability to be very clear with what he is trying to say without overcomplicating things and gives a massive amount of relevant detail. By far one the best professor I've ever had." (Second-year student, 2013-14)
  • "I felt like I was actually learning worthwhile, interesting topics - one of the more interesting modules I have done definitely." (Second-year student, 2013-14)
  • "I valued the seminars in this unit very much as they allowed the whole class to discuss the topic we had learned in the lecture. The material given before the seminars proved to be difficult at times but that allowed me to research deeper into the topic itself." (Second-year student, 2013-14)
  • "Frank is a brilliant teacher. His passion for the subject is strongly seen in his teaching. He is very knowledgeable in his subject which provides additional support and opportunity for discussion. He is very approachable in his availability and his willingness to support his students. He is definitely an asset to the SPLA department and I would recommend his courses to others." (Final-year student, 2013-14)
  • "His enthusiasm and obvious interest in what is already a very intellectually stimulating subject meant that classes and topics were extremely engaging. His in-depth knowledge of the issues dealt with in this course meant we were able to explore areas which were of most interest to us. I thought his lectures were outstanding, probably the most interesting series that I have experienced in my time at university." (Final-year student, 2013-14)
