University shortlisted for higher education awards

Higher Education Awards

Bondholder University of Derby has been shortlisted for two national awards for its commitment to quality in teaching, learning and research.  

The Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards (Thelmas) celebrate the best examples of innovation, teamwork and enterprise at UK universities.

The University is one of six institutions shortlisted for the Teaching and Learning Strategy of the Year category, designed to recognise ‘a teaching and learning strategy that is distinctive and innovative, has enhanced both the student and staff experience, and reflects an institution’s core values’.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Kathryn Mitchell said: “Being shortlisted for these awards is testament to everyone’s hard work in taking forward the strategy and enabling us to achieve great outcomes for our students, as well as external recognition for Derby.”

The University was also shortlisted in the DataPoints Merit Award category, which is based on analysis of data collected from UK universities by Times Higher Education as part of their World University Rankings, which look at teaching, research, international outlook, reputation and more. 

Times Higher Education editor John Gill said: "The Thelmas are unique in shining a deserved spotlight on often unsung heroes from across the professional services and administration of our world-leading universities, and it’s an honour for Times Higher Education to organise an event celebrating their achievements.”
