The Queen's Students' Union's Education Awards

The fifth annual Queen's Students' Union's Education Awards Ceremony took place in The Great Hall on Wednesday 18 April.

It recognised, rewarded and celebrated the staff and students who work to ensure that Queen's delivers the best educational experience possible.

A record 300+ nominations were received this year, illustrating the fantastic practices happening across the University.

"In recent years, the Students' Union and the University have been working to create a tangible way to embed students as partners in their education. That culture of partnership is beginning to come alive. The Education Awards is the true embodiment of what we can achieve when we work together in partnership." Lucy Gault, Student Officer Education.
