University recognised for Outstanding Support for Students

The University of Leicester has been shortlisted for a Times Higher Education award in the Outstanding Support for Students category - and is the only university to have won a Times Higher Education award for every year since the inception of the awards.

Hundreds of nominations for outstanding institutions, departments and individuals were submitted across 18 categories covering the full range of university activity. These awards showcase the pioneering spirit, adaptability and sheer quality of our sector.

The nomination in the ‘Outstanding Student Support’ category recognises the innovative approach the Career Development Service have taken and, more specifically, its commitment to ensuring every student studying at Leicester has access to opportunities that will develop their transferable skills.

The full shortlist for all 18 categories is published in today’s issue of Times Higher Education, and is also available on the awards website.

The winners will be announced on Thursday 27 November 2014 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.
