Anyone can win an Oscar or a Tony; nowadays the real competition is for the Thelmas.

Congratulations to our School of Museum Studies who won the Outstanding Departmental Administration category of the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards (which aren’t formally known as the Thelmas, but…).

The Leadership and Management Awards are separate to the annual Times Higher Education Awards – in which we won University of the Year a couple of years ago – although they are organised by the same HE trade mag (which, confusingly, has no connection with The Times).

The awards were presented at a swanky ceremony in a posh hotel in London last week. In presenting the Outstanding Departmental Administration award, the judges said:

The University of Leicester’s School of Museum Studies has become a world leader in the museum industry thanks to its ‘highly engaged and dynamic’ administrative team.”
