Transforming Education Awards (TEAs)

The Transforming Education Awards provide students with an opportunity to thank and reward those exceptional members of university staff who have had a positive impact on them and their educational career. This can be lecturers, academic advisors, student representatives or other members of the university staff.

We have 15 awards up for grabs, ranging from School of the Year Award to the NEW Most Impactful on PGT Experience Award and we need your input to make sure we recognise all the talented individuals UEA has to offer!

Why are TEAs important?

After a difficult two years, we are incredibly proud of how our students and staff have handled a return to in-person teaching and we want to reward those who have gone the extra mile to support their students and their education. Teaching staff are an integral part of the university experience for all of our students and it is important for us to recognise and celebrate where this is being done well.

How will the awards be announced?

  • Nominations Open - Thursday 12th May
  • Nominations Close - Monday 6th June
  • Results videos will be posted on the SU website throughout the week beginning Monday 20th June

All nominees will receive a certificate, recognising their achievements and winners will be presented with a crystal award.

What's it like?

We’ve previously had such a good time celebrating the TEAs in person, and we look forward to bringing this back in 2022/23!

Here's some of the best bits from '19 - '21.

Looking to nominate?

If you’ve had a particularly positive experience with a School, team, staff member or course representative during your time here at UEA and would like to thank them, why not nominate them for a Transforming Education Award?
