The new award, launched by the Higher Education Academy and Times Higher Education, received entries from universities and HE providers across the world.

The awarded recognises institution-wide approaches to teaching excellence and we were assessed against three main areas: excellence in the leadership of teaching and learning; excellence in teaching; and excellence in student support, to make it through to the global shortlist of 27.

Professor Peter Lambert, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching), said: “We know how strong our commitment is to world-class teaching and learning and I am very pleased to see this recognised on the world stage.

“I would like to thank all the staff from across the University who have got us to this point and I am looking forward to finding out who the overall winner is in September.”
