Teaching Awards

Edinburgh University Students' Association was the first in the UK to offer student-led Teaching Awards. Great teaching is what makes your university experience really take off, and through the Teaching Awards, we want to celebrate the best of the teaching on offer at the University of Edinburgh.


The Teaching Awards are your chance to thank the academic and support staff who’ve had the biggest impact on you. There are awards for courses, teachers, research and dissertation supervisors, students who tutor, personal tutors, and support staff. Find out more about the award categories below:
