The Guardian, with its daily readership of over six million, is in the top three English language news media in the world.
The Guardian university awards give UK universities the opportunity to highlight their achievements to that vast and growing global community. One in five Guardian readers describe themselves as students.
The Guardian university awards showcase best practice, achievement and innovation across a range of categories. Honouring excellence in everything from teaching practice to inspiring facilities, the awards act as a sector benchmark and offer universities a seal of approval for their most outstanding work.
The awards recognise the value of specific projects and reward institutions that have delivered projects which exceed the expectations of their students and staff. This year, to recognise the range of work being undertaken in higher education, we’ve introduced four new categories.
All shortlisted entries will be invited to attend the awards ceremony in central London in March 2015, where the winners will be announced. In addition there will be a dedicated site which will host a university awards “ideas bank”, containing all the written submissions that made the shortlist.
Entries, accompanied by the requisite fee, will be accepted from all recognised higher educations institutions in the UK.
Shortlisted entrants will receive:
• Two tickets to attend the awards ceremony
• Exposure on the Guardian web site
• Inclusion in the Guardian university award ideas bank (winners and runners-up)
