Student-Led Teaching Awards3 June 2014
The winners of this year’s Student-Led Teaching Awards were announced at a glittering awards ceremony on Friday night.
The awards are run by UADSA and are a chance for students to give something back to the people who have educated and inspired them this year.
With the biggest turn-out for the event so far, staff and students gathered in Bar One to see who had won the coveted awards.
There were a number of new categories this year, and the winners were delighted and humbled by their nominations.
