Outstanding Student Admission Team award
The award was presented to Lancaster’s faculty and central postgraduate admissions team by Julian Clary during a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, which was attended by over eight hundred guests.
One of the judges, Ken Sloan, registrar at Warwick, said: “The submission focused on developments and changes the team made in its approach to postgraduate admissions, all made during a time of institutional change. This showed them to be exceptional.”
Lancaster’s Dean of Graduate Studies Professor Geraint Johnes said: “I'm delighted to hear the news of the award which is well earned recognition of the hard and excellent work done by our PG admissions team (across the whole university) during a period of rapid change.”
Postgraduate students make up a third of the student population at Lancaster University, which has an excellent reputation for both teaching and research.
John Gill, editor of Times Higher Education, said: “The sector should take great reassurance from the extraordinary examples of creativity, commitment and sheer hard work that the awards judges have recognised.”
