Bondholder University of Derby has been named one of 17 finalists in the Global Teaching Excellence Awards (GTEA), which showcase the world’s best institutions in 2018.

Introduced last year, the awards, led by Advance HE, recognise and celebrate institution-wide commitment to the pursuit of teaching excellence.

The awards are open to all providers of higher education across the world and in 2018 attracted expressions of interest from institutions based in 41 countries in the six permanently populated continents.

Following a rigorous two-stage review and selection process, 17 finalists across the globe were selected including Edge Hill University, The Open University, University of Johannesburg, South Africa, and Vancouver Island University, Canada.

Professor Kathryn Mitchell, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Derby, said: “This is the second time we have been nominated for the awards. It is fantastic to be recognised for the strength of the learning and teaching strategy at Derby, which is meeting the needs of a diverse student population through innovative ways of engaging with students.

“As a Gold TEF rated institution, this is additional recognition of our excellence in learning and teaching quality.”
