Teaching awards contenders named

The shortlist for the 2013 EUSA Teaching Awards has been announced.


Run by EUSA and voted for by students, these annual awards celebrate teaching excellence at the University.

This year there are 14 awards categories rewarding teaching and teaching support staff, postgraduate tutors and students who support their peers through recognised schemes.

This year the panel were hugely impressed by the quality of the nominations from across the University. I have always been pleasantly surprised at the lengths members of the University community will go to to ensure that their teaching is world leading.
