The Guardian University Awards 2019

Applications are now open for the annual Guardian University Awards which celebrate excellence and innovation across the higher education sector, including awards for research impact, teaching excellence, the student experience and internationalisation.

Applications are made via two 300-word submissions which outline the project, its innovation and how it was delivered, alongside clear evidence of significant impact. The project must have started in the past 18 months, but need not necessarily have finished if definitive outcomes are proven.

It will cost applicants £250 to submit an entry, although this is discounted by £50 during the ‘early bird’ period which runs until Thursday 31 January 2019.

Applications close on Friday 15 February 2019 with judging taking place across March. Shortlisted entries will be invited to attend the awards ceremony in London on 10 April 2019.

For further information on the categories available, entry writing tips and to submit your nominations, please visit Guardian University Awards.
