The Faculty of Arts boasts of an excellent staff-student relationship, which students coming from other universities sometimes find impressive. Although student numbers have grown over recent years, the staff-student ratio is still a good one. While some classes can be large, most classes are small enough to allow for more personalised and participatory learning/teaching practices such as tutorials, seminars and workshops.
Students in the Faculty of Arts are among the most active in student life and participate readily in exchange programmes. The presence of a significant number of overseas students, in regular enrolment or on exchange visits, enriches the experience of students and academic staff alike.
