Teaching awards










With over 3,000 nominations across eleven different categories, the 2015 EUSA Teaching Awards were as successful as ever. SPS were particularly well represented, with three members of our staff reaching the 2015 shortlist; more than any other School.

Congratulations must go to Dr Alison Koslowski who won the award for Best Personal Tutor. Dr Jamie Cross was runner up in his category for Best Research Dissertation Supervisor and Dr Claire Haggett narrowly missed out on the Supporting Students' Learning Award.

EUSA's Teaching Awards are designed to recognise the teachers, support staff, and peer support leaders who have made an enormous positive impact on students' learning experiences at The University of Edinburgh.

The awards are voted for and judged by students themselves. The winners of each category are then chosen by a student panel based on the number of nominations received alongside supporting statements.

The ceremony was compered by student hosts David Johnston and Polly Glynn, and included performances from University groups such as the Tango Society, the Improverts, and the Salsa Society.

The event provided a great opportunity to unite students and staff and to showcase the strength of teaching within the University and within our School. We are proud that our staff have been recognised for their continual hard work and their commitment to the student experience.
