How can students nominate?


Students can nominate by going to eusa.ed.ac.uk/teachingawards. Once they’ve signed into the website using their EASE login details they can nominate in any of the 8 categories.


What are the nomination categories?


  • Supervisor of the Year
  • Outstanding Feedback 
  • Personal Tutor of the Year
  • Outstanding Support Staff
  • Student Tutor of the Year
  • Outstanding Commitment to Liberation in the Curriculum
  • Outstanding Course 
  • Teacher of the Year


Who can nominate?


All students can nominate. This includes students at all levels of study (undergraduate, PGT and PGR), on campus and online learners, and full-time and part-time students. All learners in the Centre for Open Learning can also nominate – any learner without a matriculation number can use the visitor login option on the Students’ Association website. 


Can students nominate more than once?


Yes! Students can nominate as many times as they would like, in multiple categories or in the same category. We can only judge the nominations based on the content of what they write, so they should be as detailed as possible.


What happens when a staff member is nominated?


Every staff member who is nominated receives a letter with their nomination comments and a Teaching Awards pin badge. Two nominees will be shortlisted for each award. They are invited to the ceremony in April 2020.


When do nominations close?


Nominations open for postgraduate students from August until the end of September. Nominations will then reopen in November and close in March. The shortlist will be released in early April. The ceremony is in late April.


Who judges the Teaching Awards?


The Teaching Awards are entirely student-led, so the judging panel is made up entirely of student volunteers. The panel is selected from existing students at the University,  from all Colleges and at all levels of study.
