EUSA teaching award

At a ceremony, 11 awards were presented to outstanding members of University staff and postgraduate tutors.

Record year

This year, a record 5,168 student nominations were received for 777 teachers.

This is an excellent demonstration of why it is important to reward those who provide excellent teaching to their students. I am proud that EUSA is able to allow students to express their gratitude to those who deliver for them.
