Student Teaching Awards 2020

There are many great members of staff here at the University of Glasgow – this is our chance to recognise the outstanding work of those who have helped us.

Every year the Student’s Representative Council hosts the Student Teaching Awards (aka the STAs), a fantastic chance for us to recognise the outstanding work of those who have gone above and beyond to make our time here at Glasgow the best it can possibly be!

Usually we would host a fancy event in the Kelvin Gallery, however this year due to COVID we held virtual version of the awards. On our Facebook page from 09:00 – 17:30 on Friday 12th June, we shared a series of videos for each of the award categories. There was an intro from our VP Education Liam and speeches from senior members of staff at the University who have helped us over our 10 years of organising these awards.

View the video and winners below!
