How does a university stand out from the crowd? In a fast-growing sector with rising student numbers, expanding campuses and noisy social media, every university needs a surefire way to raise its profile.
And that’s where the Guardian University Awards come in. Winning an award highlights your achievements to the Guardian website’s 8 million daily readers around the world. Of those readers, one in five describes themselves as a student – exactly the people who need to know which universities are doing an especially great job.
All you have to do is pick a category in which you believe you stand out. The categories honour excellence in everything from teaching practice to beautiful buildings, and the awards offer universities a seal of approval for their most outstanding work.
Shortlisted entrants will receive:
- Two tickets to attend the awards ceremony
- Exposure on the Guardian website
- Inclusion in the Guardian University Awards ideas bank (winners and runners-up).
The deadline for applications is 2 February 2016.
