The National Teaching Fellowship Scheme is a prestigious national award with accolade for both the National Teaching Fellow and the University. The awards are made by the Higher Education Academy (HEA). National Teaching Fellows have demonstrated sustained excellence at national and international level.
Eligible institutions can nominate up to three individuals each year. The University uses an internal application process, conducted by a panel of SEEG on behalf of APC, to decide who it will support in submitting an application to the HEA. Potential applicants are normally approached individually and encouraged to apply after being identified by members of the Panel, senior staff within the colleges or Heads of Department.
- Go to the HEA NTFS website for information about eligibility and process (external site)
