The 2016 Education Award ceremony took place on Monday 29 February, in the magnificent setting of Drapers Hall. The event was attended by around 130 student and staff nominees and award winners.
The Queen Mary Education Awards include both our Course Rep Awards and student-led Teaching Awards, celebrating the contributions of staff and students to improving the Queen Mary learning experience.
The Teaching Awards included twelve categories, ranging from Teacher of the Year (Dr Stephen Potts, School of Biological and Chemical Sciences) to Unsung Hero (Shazad Noorshargh, Estates and Facilities Security Service).
As well as the many Course Rep Contribution Awards given out on the night, awards were also made for campaigning, collaboration, engagement and Course Rep of the Year (Sunie Kundi, Dentistry Year 4).
The Awards were hosted by the current Vice-President Education, Imran Hussain, who commented:
“I feel honoured to have been given the opportunity to host the Education Awards, which was a truly special event spent with some truly special people.
Huge congratulations to all those involved, nominated, and our winners. I wish you all even more success in the future!”
