Principal’s Medal 2021 nominations open

All staff and students are invited to nominate a member of the University Community for the 2021 Principal’s Medals.

The University awards Principal’s Medals annually and they are one of the most important ways in which the University recognises professional services and academic colleagues and current students who have delivered exceptional service, in supporting and serving the University or the wider community and demonstrated strong alignment to the University’s values. A maximum of five awards will be made.

How to nominate

Information on the criteria and the Principal’s Medals nomination form, can be accessed via the Principal’s Medals webpages at: Principal's Medals guidance and nomination form.

Nominations must be submitted by email to by 5pm on Wednesday 27th October 2021.

The Principal will chose the winners, and normally they are awarded their Medal during winter graduations although that maybe subject to alternative arrangements this year.

Any queries can be directed to Nicola Helliwell, Executive Officer, Principal's Office at any time.
