Awards and Recognition of Best Practice

The QAU manages a couple of schemes which aim to spotlight and support excellence and/or commission improvements in the delivery of undergraduate medical education.

Excellence in Medical Education Awards (EMEA)

Improving the quality of medical education for UCL students and ensuring that high standards within teaching and learning processes are recognised and rewarded is a core part of the role of the Quality Assurance Unit. 

If you are involved in undergraduate medical education and committed to teaching and learning, then why not apply for an EMEA?

More about EMEAs:

  • Winners receive a cash prize and a certificate
  • Awards are presented by the Vice Provost (Health) and Head of the Medical School at the graduation ceremony.
  • Applications welcome from anyone involved in the provision of education to medical students.
  • All applicants must complete an application form and provide a supporting statement from a referee
  • Reviewing and shortlisting applications will be undertaken by an EMEA Shortlisting Panel representing the Medical School Quality Management and Enhancement Committee (mQMEC)

Top Teachers Awards/Top Administrators

Throughout the course of the year, via the SEQs, students are given the opportunity to nominate teachers who have been particularly helpful or inspiring to them during their studies. In addition, students are able to nominate administrators whom they have found to be particularly helpful and supportive. At the end of the academic year, the QAU counts the number of nominations for each teacher/administrator and the ones with the most nominations receive an award.
