June 18, 2014

The ceremony, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, was attended by more than 800 people and hosted by comedian Rob Brydon.

UEA won the Outstanding Leadership and Management Team category and was praised by the judges for its “commitment to improving teaching as well as world-class research …and a focus on boosting staff-to-student ratios”.

Investment in staffing improved the university’s staff-to-student ratio from 1:18 in 2010 to 1:13.5 in 2012-13, permitting more small group teaching, according to its entry.

The University of Sheffield picked up two awards, winning in both the Outstanding Departmental Administration Team and Outstanding Library Team categories. Judges pointed to the institution’s library now being one of the most highly rated in the country thanks to a “dramatic and sustained improvement in student satisfaction”.

The University of Cumbria also won two awards as it was honoured for its Outstanding Finance Team and Outstanding Student Services Team. For its finance award, judges had been particularly impressed “with how the team set a strategy to transform regular annual deficits into surpluses and delivered it”.
