Superstar Awards

Showcasing excellence at the University of Leicester

The Superstar Awards are run by the Students' Union to celebrate exceptional staff members at the University. These awards exist to recognise members of staff who have gone above and beyond in their role, or who have made a significant contribution to a student or department. They provide a unique opportunity for students to highlight excellence in teaching or student support, and offer exceptional staff members the chance to receive recognition for their efforts.

If you have a tutor who has inspired you, a staff member who has supported you through a difficult time at university or a lecturer who has made a big impact on your studies, say thank you by nominating them for a Superstar Award!


Nominations for the 2018/9 Academic Year have now closed. Thank you to everyone who nominated, and to all the fantastic staff members for your efforts this year.

A panel will soon be completing shortlisting and deciding on the overall winners, so stay posted to find out whether your nominee won!
