Cambridge Centre for Teaching and Learning


Who can be nominated?

Any undergraduate or postgraduate student who you think has made a significant positive impact on the educational experience at Cambridge can be nominated, within one of the categories of award.

Nominations can be for an individual or for a group of students, and groups may be nominated even if they included input from staff.


Who can submit a nomination?

Any current staff member or student at the University of Cambridge may submit a nomination. You may nominate as many students or groups as you wish - just remember to fill in a separate nomination form for each group!


Selection criteria

Winners will be selected based on meeting one or more of the following criteria:

  • A positive contribution to the nominated student's educational community that goes above and beyond
  • A key role in stimulating other students' engagement with their learning and teaching experiences
  • A positive impact in representing other students' voices on issues related to learning and teaching
  • Leadership in driving initiatives, projects or events focused on enhancing the educational experience of other students at Cambridge

The CCTL will review nominations according to these criteria and create a shortlist which will be considered by an Awards Panel. Nominations may be shortlisted based on meeting just one criterion, and particular consideration will be given to multiple nominations for the same student. If the Panel does not believe that any of the nominees meets the criteria, they may recommend that no award be given.
