Queen Mary Education Awards 2016

Wednesday 30 March 2016

The 2016 Education Award ceremony took place on Monday 29 February, in the magnificent setting of Drapers' Hall in the City of London. The event was attended by around 130 student and staff nominees and award winners.

The Education Awards include the Course Rep Awards, awarded to Course Reps who have made a huge difference to students and their courses, and the Teaching Awards, awarded to teaching and support staff who have made an outstanding contribution to the student experience.

Professor Rebecca Lingwood, Vice-Principal (Student Experience, Teaching and Learning), said: “This is my first Education Awards at QMUL, and I have been delighted to see the breadth of commitment from both staff and students towards improving the learning experience. The outstanding contributions from Course Reps, teaching and support staff have shown the variety of activity and work that takes place at QMUL to enhance the student experience. The fact that nominations and voting is entirely student-led makes the recognition all the more special, and I congratulate everyone involved on their achievements.”

The awards were hosted by the current Queen Mary Students' Union Vice-President Education, Imran Hussain, who commented: “I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to host the Education Awards, which was a truly special event spent with some truly special people. Huge congratulations to all those involved, nominated, and our winners. I wish you all even more success in the future!”
