Dr Carole Torsney (Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences) has been awarded the EUSA Personal Tutor of the Year award 2022.

The Deanery would like to send their congratulations to Carole for winning the EUSA Teacher of the Year award 2022.

This is a wonderful achievement and testament to Carole’s unstinting support of our students, working alongside our fantastic BMTO Student support and the Senior Personal Tutor teams. On behalf of everyone in BMS, staff and students alike, our heartiest congratulations and very best wishes to Carole.

Prof Mike ShipstonDean, Biomedical Sciences

I still can’t believe how lucky I have been to have Carole Torsney as my personal tutor in the past four years. My experience at the University of Edinburgh would have been different if she hadn’t been there to support me, step after step of my academic career and personal development.
