Global Recognition for University

An international panel of judges has shortlisted Bondholder the University of Derby as one of 27 finalists in the Higher Education Academy’s (HEA) first Global Teaching Excellence Awards (GTEA).

The award, in partnership with Times Higher Education, is open to all providers of higher education and GTEA 2017 included entries from around the world.

GTEA is awarded to an institution as a whole in recognition of institution-wide approaches to teaching excellence.

This news comes quickly in the wake of Derby’s Gold award in the country’s first ever Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), putting it in the top 20% of all higher education providers in the UK.

Professor Kathryn Mitchell, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Derby, said: “Coming so soon after our TEF Gold Award, being shortlisted for the first ever GTEA highlights Derby’s position at the forefront of teaching excellence not just in the UK but on the global stage. It is fantastic to see the hard work of our staff, and the achievement of our students, recognised in this way.”
