How the awards are judged

For the Excellence in Education awards, panels will judge the nominations (within each Faculty/Directorate) and determine the winner of each award.  The three overall award winners will be invited to a celebratory event in the summer and form the shortlist for an overall Excellence in Education award which will be presented on the night.

For the Student-Led Teaching awards, panels will judge the nominations and determine the winner of each award. All nominees will be notified of their nominations. The panel will choose a shortlist of three nominees for each award who will be notified and invited to attend an event where the winner for each award per faculty will be announced.
