Nominated for EUSA Teaching Awards

Congratulations to staff and students nominated for this year's EUSA Teaching Awards.

Edinburgh University Students' Association (EUSA)’s annual Teaching Awards recognise the teachers, support staff and courses that have a positive impact on students' learning experiences at the University.

Although we had no overall winners this year, 15 staff, six students who tutor and three courses were nominated, some more than once (see brackets), indicating a high level of student satisfaction.

Several staff who were nominated last year were nominated again this year, including our 2014-15 winner Iain Murray, reflecting a consistent quality of excellence in their teaching.

The School is proud to list below the teachers, students who tutor, personal tutors, support staff and courses nominated for a 2015-16 EUSA Teaching Award.
