Is your lecturer one in a million?


The annual Vice-Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards (VCDTAs) are back! These awards not only recognise lecturers for their teaching but also those staff who support your learning.

Please nominate someone who has inspired you or made a difference to your time at DMU. Students also sit on the awards panel, helping to recognise the creativity and outstanding quality of DMU’s staff.

Nominations close at the end of Monday 11 February (please note the new extended deadline). You can nominate online or pick up a voting card from De Montfort Students’ Union (DSU) reception in the Campus Centre. Please note, if you want to share the nominations weblink with anyone, please use the original link from this page instead of linking from the form that you have submitted.
