Student Teaching Awards

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 members of staff who have gone above and beyond to make our time here at Glasgow the best it can possibly be!

We have 15 categories for you to nominate in, and nominations were open until 26th February 2016. The awards ceremony was held on the 18th March 2016. Feel free to tag any social media posts about this year’s STAs with #STA1516.
