UCL Education Awards recognise the work of colleague’s work that has enabled excellent practice or facilitated innovation in teaching and learning. There were 39 individual nominations and 12 team nominations who received a UCL Education Award.

Dr Priti Parikh, Senior Lecturer, Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering was one of 12 individuals to receive a Provost’s Education Award. Priti has made a ground breaking contribution to engineering and development teaching in her department and as such a contribution to the student experience in engineering. Priti facilitated over 100 students to engage with international organisations through volunteer placements at UCL and has forged a partnership with Royal Academy of Engineers which will now see students working closely with entrepreneurs in Africa on funded placements.

Her passion for education is noted by both colleagues and students and she was recently selected to be part of the exhibition profiles 24 women from across UCL who inspire those around them.  She is described as "changing the world using engineering".​
