Swansea University has picked up the top prize in the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards 2016.  

The institution took home the Outstanding Leadership and Management Team award in recognition of the improvements it made in research quality and undergraduate enrolments in addition to its successful opening of a £450 million second campus.

Judges said that the university had managed to “embed a strong and consistently applied project management approach and skills across the institution”.

Nottingham Trent University picked up two awards at the ceremony, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, for Outstanding Procurement Team and for Outstanding Digital Innovation in Management and Administration.

Other winners included the University of Edinburgh, for Outstanding Finance Team; De Montfort University, for Outstanding International Strategy; and the SETsquared Partnership (involving the universities of Bath, Bristol, Exeter, Southampton and Surrey), for Knowledge Exchange/Transfer Initiative of the Year.

The ceremony for the awards, affectionately known as the Thelmas, was attended by more than 1,000 people and hosted by comedian Jimmy Carr.
