Student Led Teaching Awards
Student Led Teaching Awards

The Student Led Teaching Awards are back!

It is that time of the year again, when Aberystwyth University students have the chance to nominate and acknowledge the work of staff and students at the University.

Now in their fourth year, the Student Led Teaching Awards (SLTAs) give students the opportunity to nominate staff members and Student Reps who are committed to delivering and enhancing the student experience.  

The Awards will be presented in a ceremony hosted by the Students’ Union and supported by the University on Friday 24th April.

There are two new categories  this year;  ‘Supervisor of the Year’, aimed at outstanding dissertation tutors or those who have given help on a final project, and ‘Outstanding Contribution to University Life’, for people who have gone the extra mile to make a difference to University life.

Grace Burton, Aberystwyth Students’ Union Education Officer said: “We want to hear about all the inspirational lecturers and tutors, fantastic non-academic staff and outstanding student representatives around the University.

Last year, we had an incredible 400 nominations and we’re already on target to beat that.

The awards evening really is one of the most exciting events of the University calendar and I can't wait to have as many students celebrating with us as possible.”

Professor John Grattan, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Student Experience and International said: “This is an excellent initiative on the part of the Students’ Union. Aberystwyth University takes great pride in the quality of its teaching staff, and what better way of recognising this than giving students a chance to voice their opinions on who inspires them and makes their University experience at Aberystwyth special.

It is also good to see the awards branching out for the first time to acknowledge those that make an outstanding contribution to University life, as well as commending the supervisors that assist students in their final year projects.”
