This year the categories in the Golden Robes are split into student-led, staff led and student/staff led. All of these categories aim to celebrate the amazing work that goes on in the Leeds Beckett community. Filling in a nomination takes no time at all and you can submit as many different nominations as you would like. So whether it’s one staff member in one category or multiple staff members per single category it doesn’t matter!


Here are all the categories that Leeds Beckett Students can nominate in:

Best Lecturer

This award is for a lecturer that really stands out for you; someone who delivers interesting and engaging sessions that make you want to get up for every 09:00 lecture.

Best Course Team

If you think your entire Course Team excels at everything they do, from delivering your lectures to providing outstanding support, then nominate them for this award.

Best Module

Have you taken a module that interested, challenged and excited you? Whether it involved ways of learning that you’d never experienced, or its content was particularly great, if your module was awesome, nominate it here.

Best Feedback

This award is for a tutor whose feedback really stands out as an example of inspiring you to develop yourself. Helpful, constructive and timely feedback might be what matters most to you, or perhaps an innovative method that really works. Nominate your tutor if their tips and pointers are those that help you the most as a student.

Best Course Director

Your Course Director is the person who oversees your entire course, making sure it runs smoothly, your teaching is of the highest standard, and that your voices as students are heard. If your Course Director does all this and more, nominate them for this award.

Best Dissertation Supervisor

If you have had a dissertation supervisor that always pushes you to aim higher and make your work even better, or that has provided vital support in a stressful time, nominate them for this award.

Best Academic Advisor

This award is for an Academic Advisor that has helped students with anything they need while studying at Leeds Beckett University, and has distinguished themselves while doing this.

Unsung Hero

If there's a person in the Leeds Beckett community that works beyond the classroom to make a positive difference to studying here, and doesn't get the recognition they deserve, then nominate them as your unsung hero.
