Glasgow universities have been shortlisted for multiple awards in the 'Oscars of higher education', including the prestigious University of the Year Award.

The University of Strathclyde is in the running for the UK University of the Year Award for a second time, having previously won the title in 2012.

Strathclyde is also in contention in three other categories: Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development; Widening Participation or Outreach Initiative; and Outstanding Library Team.

Professor Gordon Morison of Glasgow Caledonian University's School of Computing, Engineering and Built Environment has been nominated for the Outstanding Research Supervisor of the Year Award. GCU has also been shortlisted for the THE DataPoints Merit and Outstanding Support for Students Awards.

The University of Glasgow has been shortlisted for the Outstanding Estates Strategy Award.

The 2019 winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on November 28. 

Professor Sir Jim McDonald, University of Strathclyde principal, said: “This is tremendous news for our entire university community and reflects the educational, social and economic contribution of our staff and students over the last year.

"We have accelerated our vision as a leading international technological university to make a positive difference to our students, our partners and the local and global communities we serve.

"We are proud to work with our partners to provide technological and socially progressive solutions to global challenges, while nurturing talent, fostering innovation, and generating jobs and inclusive economic growth.

John Gill, THE editor, said: "The THE Awards hold a place in the hearts of many in UK higher education and have now been a fixture in the its calendar for well over a decade.

"This year we decided to incorporate the complementary strengths of our THE Leadership and Management Awards, so that the range of categories better reflects the reality of how universities operate today, and the interwoven nature of so much of what they do.

"This will be the biggest celebration of higher education that we have ever hosted.

“I am delighted to say that the ‘Oscars of higher education’ go from strength to strength. With 23 categories this year, we’re also showcasing more exceptional stories than ever before, and it’s a real honour for us to shine a spotlight on all those who have made it as far as these shortlists – their stories deserve much wider circulation.”
