Don't Forget! Lecturer and Course of the Year Awards

If you are a student of one of our AOP affiliated courses, you can make nominations for lecturer and course of the year. This is a great chance to highlight a particular staff member who has gone above and beyond in the department, and to get your course the recognition it deserves!

Full criteria and how to nominate can be found here under the 'Categories' heading.
As you know, call for entries are open, so keep spreading the word! Does everyone on your course know about the awards yet?
