Principal’s Medals 2023 nominations are now open

All staff and students are invited to nominate a member of the University community for the 2023 Principal’s Medals.

The University awards Principal’s Medals annually and they are one of the most important ways in which the University recognises our staff and students.

It’s important we take the time to award those in professional services and our academic colleagues, as well as current and recently graduated students, who have delivered exceptional service, served the University and wider community and demonstrated strong alignment to the University’s values.


How can I nominate?

Information on the criteria and the Principal’s Medals nomination form, can be accessed via the Principal’s Medals webpages below:

Principal's Medals guidance and nomination form


When is the deadline?

Nominations must be submitted by email to by 5pm on Friday 25 August 2023.

The Principal will choose the winners and normally they are awarded their medals during winter graduations.

Please direct any queries to Nicola Helliwell, Executive Officer, Principal's Office.
