MDXSU Student-Led Teaching Awards 2020: WINNERS

Friday 01-05-2020 - 14:53

This year we had to host our Student-Led Teaching Awards (SLTA) a little differently. On Friday 1st May we annouced our winners across our social media channels and picked some of the best quotes directly from the nominations we recieved.

These awards are key opportunity for Middlesex students to show their appreciation and recognition of academic and professional services staff members from across the university.

From 15 January to 15 February 2020, students nominated staff in thirty different categories to receive recognition as part of the Student-Led Teaching Awards.

MDXSU Student Officers and Student Representatives from Union Council read through all the nominations and took the time to determine the shortlist and winners based on what students wrote in their nominations and the criteria of the awards themselves.

After receiving a staggering 505 nominations across all categories, we want to thank the hundreds of students who placed nominations, and congratulate all staff who were nominated, shortlisted and those who went on to win.
