Academic Families, Biomedical Sciences' peer support group, has won the Impact Award for Best Peer Support Group for 2017.
This is the second year in the row that Academic Families has won the award in this category.
Absolutely fantastic news - this is an outstanding demonstration of how our staff and students work in close partnership to support and develop our learning environment - my congratulations to Dr Debbie Shaw and the whole support team in BMTO as well as to Baber who has been such an outstanding advocate for our students.
In another win for Biomedical Sciences, School Convenor Baber Rasheed won in the category of Outstanding Student Leader.
We as a Deanery have successfully changed our community and learning environment for the better, and it would not have been possible without the students and staff from the Deanery of Biomedical Sciences. We've continuously been recognised from sustainability to teaching to student impact every year, and our successes will continue to grow.
The Impact Award ceremony recognises exceptional students who make a positive impact on the University and their colleagues.
