Times Higher Education journalists have been honoured at a national awards ceremony.

December 13, 2013

The annual CIPR Education Journalism Awards, held at the Houses of Parliament last night, recognised the best in UK education journalism across print, web and broadcast.

The award for Outstanding Higher Education Journalism was won by THE reporter David Matthews, for a feature examining the co-operative approach of the University of Mondragon in the Basque Country in Northern Spain.

Paul Jump, THE’s senior research reporter, was runner-up in the category, winning a commendation from the judges for a piece on a slew of plagiarism cases across Europe , while reporter Jack Grove and deputy news editor John Morgan also made the shortlist.

Meanwhile, Dr Morgan was named as runner-up in the category of Outstanding National Education Journalism, for a feature on the state of higher education in India, as it seeks to add 10 million student places in just five years.

The category was won by Stephen Exley, a reporter on our sister title the TES.

Writers for TES and TES Scotland also won for Outstanding Apprenticeship and Skills Journalism (a second award for Mr Exley) and Outstanding Further Education Journalism (Julia Belgutay).

John Gill, THE editor, said: “David’s award, and the commendations received by John and Paul, are hugely deserved. Their success in the CIPR awards is recognition of their hard work, talent and creativity, and will be a big boost to the THE team. I’m very proud.”
