The Excellence in Education Award (EEA) is inspired by the University’s mission to achieve excellence in both education and research. We aim to provide students with a transformational education experience and intellectually challenging and stimulating courses that are based on creative and innovative approaches.
The EEA recognises and celebrates our institutional commitment to enabling our students to contribute positively to communities and societies around them.
There are three categories available. These can be submitted by self or peer nomination.

Excellence in Education Leadership Award: open to academics and/or professional services.
