Nominations 2020

Nominations are now open for the UAL Teaching Awards and Course Rep Awards!

The annual UAL Teaching Awards give students the opportunity to recognise the UAL staff who have made all the difference to their experience at UAL. This is your chance to thank your tutors, lecturers, technical staff and support staff for all of their hard work and support.

We want to know about any UAL staff member or Course Rep that has made a difference to you this year.

A few words from you could really make someone’s year special. If you know someone fantastic, nominate them!

Deadline for nominations: Sunday 19th April 2020 at midnight (GMT)

What happens once I have nominated:

  • Staff who have been nominated will receive your anonymous comments.
  • A Panel made up of students and staff will decide on the winning nominations.
  • The winners, UAL staff and Course Reps alike, will be awarded a trophy at the UAL Teaching Awards on Wednesday 27th May.
  • UAL staff and Course Reps with outstanding nominations will receive a certificate at the UAL Teaching Awards.
