    National recognition for great teaching

    We are home to 11 National Teaching Fellows - the most prestigious award for excellence in higher education teaching. Our National Teaching Fellows work across a range of subjects from geography and architecture to business and education. Our academics also take part in innovative schemes which add value to their teaching.

  • Brookes Union Teaching Awards

    Every year, our students get the opportunity to recognise members of staff who have made a real difference to their learning experience. In the Brookes Union Teaching Awards for 2018, more than 180 nominations were received for both academic and support staff. 

    Dr Mark Cain, Reader and Programme Lead for Philosophy and Religion, won the Most Inspirational Lecturer award. Students nominating Mark highlighted his passion for his subject and the outstanding support he provides for his students. 

    “Mark consistently  expresses an enthusiasm, passion and enjoyment for teaching and for his subject. He is also always willing to sit down and talk through things, whether it be academically related or to do with personal matters.”

    All my lecturers are really professional, knowledgeable and engaging as well, which makes learning much easier and more interesting, just fun.

    Kristi Ronning Langli

    Being able to have a close relationship with tutors and my academic adviser has been vital for my studies. I don't think my course would have been half as enjoyable as it is without the remarkable staff.
