The University scooped three accolades at last night’s Times Higher Education Awards in recognition of excellence in research, student support and outreach.
The awards were presented at a ceremony hosted by the comedian Julian Clary at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel where the University was shortlisted in five categories overall. The ‘Oscars of Higher Education’ recognise UK universities and their staff for exceptional teaching, research, student support, entrepreneurship, collaborations and outreach.
The University won the Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development category for the stewardship of the Ambitious Futures national graduate leadership scheme for higher education which attracts the brightest talent into employment and universities through an 18-month development progamme.
The School of Physics were highly commended in the Research Project of the Year (STEM) category for the new generation of wearable brain scanners developed in collaboration with UCL. The new scanner will improve analysis and open up new possibilities for investigating brain development and disorders including autism, epilepsy and autism.
The External Relations teams were also highly commended in the Outstanding Marketing/Communications Team category for the delivery of the Discover our World campaign promoting the University’s research to a global audience.
