Teaching Awards


Students' Association Teaching Awards

These awards – now in their ninth year - allow students to nominate members of staff that define excellence in different areas of teaching.

By acknowledging the good work done by these members of staff, the Students' Association are promoting best practice in teaching as recognised by GCU students and helping to share these good examples across the university to contribute to continued improvement in teaching.

Members of staff at GCU can be nominated online using our website by any current student enroled on a course here. You may nominate as many staff members as you want in as many categories as you want.

The awards are given out based entirely on what students say in the nominations so it is important that you tell us exactly why the person you are nominating deserves the award. The awards are not given out simply based on the number of nominations received so staff members working with small groups of students have just as much chance to win. Check out the nominations process for more information.

Award Ceremony

Every student who submits a nomination and every member of staff nominated will be invited to attend our awards ceremony.

The awards ceremony will take place on Friday 18th of May - time and location tbc.
