SU Student Led Teaching Awards winners announced

We’re delighted to announce the winners of the 2024 Cambridge SU Student-Led Teaching Awards, following last night’s ceremony. 

The SLTAs exist to reward and celebrate outstanding teaching and student support across Cambridge, and 2024 marked the 10 year anniversary of the event. This year we received over 600 nominations, which truly is a testament to all the amazing work done by staff and clearly demonstrates the gratitude felt by students. 

The shortlist and winners were decided by panels of students, who generously gave up their time to read through all the nominations, and the very difficult task of selecting the standout individuals for each category. Winners and highly commended in each of the nine categories were announced last night at a ceremony held at University Centre.
