Our annual Teaching Awards provide students with an opportunity to thank staff for their hard work and celebrate the very best of teaching and support at the University, something that’s more important than ever this academic year. 

 

Staff play a pivotal role in the student experience at Edinburgh, from lecturers and tutors, to supervisors and Personal Tutors, and professional services staff.  

 

This year, staff have continued to teach and support students, often in challenging personal and professional circumstances, and that's why we'll be utilising social media to recognise and celebrate as many nominees as possible, not just those who are shortlisted.

 

Nominations mean so much to staff, so take five minutes before nominations close on April 5 2021 to say thank you to the staff who’ve shaped your time at University so far. You can nominate in the following categories:
