Students and staff celebrated top quality university teaching at the second annual EUSA Teaching Awards.
In total, 3262 nominations were submitted, with 420 academic staff, 155 courses and 55 departments being nominated for awards.
Winners were selected by a student panel and presented with their awards by students from the Student Representative Council and senior members of the University.
The awards presented, 13 in total, included the Best Department, Best Course, and Overall High Performer.
Since the EUSA Teaching Awards were launched last year, the University has developed new guidelines for properly rewarding and recognising good teaching.
