The President’s Awards for Excellence are annual awards to recognise staff members who have made outstanding contributions in Education, Research or Societal Engagement.

Awards in the Education stream recognise staff who have demonstrated excellence in teaching, research supervision and supporting the student experience. The Research awards recognise staff that have demonstrated excellence in early career research, research support, innovation and entrepreneurship, external collaboration and partnerships, and as part of a research team. The Societal Engagement awards recognise and reward staff, students and community partners who have demonstrated excellence in schools outreach, local community engagement, engagement with research and/or patient engagement.

Nominations are made by staff and students from across the College with the winners of each award category decided by selection panels overseen by the Vice-Provost (Education), the Vice-Provost (Research and Enterprise), and the Associate-Provost (Academic Partnerships). Those awardees judged to have made particularly exceptional contributions are selected to receive the President’s Medal.
