Nominations have significantly increased over the last few years, which shows that more and more students are recognising the importance of the quality of teaching on their education.

Of the 600 nominations, academics and non-academics were nominated for their hard work in the University over the 12 categories. Amongst the awards, the Teacher of the Year award went to Dylan Wyn Jones, School of Medical Sciences and the School of Welsh was crowned School of the Year.

Professor Gerwyn Wiliams, Head of the School of Welsh, said:

“The school takes great pride in this award which is a clear indication of the value and importance of small academic departments.”

I would also like to thank my colleagues in the school for the opportunities given and their excellent support.”


Professor Carol Tully, Pro Vice Chancellor (Students) said: “This was another wonderful celebration of all the great work done by staff across the university. It is heartening to see that work recognised so enthusiastically by students. Many congratulation to all the nominees and winners.”
