Some of the universities we work with in the UK received awards in three categories at the ceremony held in London on the 28th November.

Now in their ninth year, the Times Higher Education Awards are held to celebrate the best of the sector. The winners were announced at the Grosvenor House Hotel in a ceremony hosted by Sandi Toksvig.

Following on from winning 'Entrepreneurial University of the Year' in 2012, the University of Huddersfield claimed the ‘University of the Year’ accolade. The University of the Year is awarded to ‘an institution that has demonstrated exceptional performance in the past academic year’. The winner should also evidence ‘particular bold, imaginative and innovative initiatives that have advanced the institution’s reputation’.

The University of Strathclyde was awarded ‘Entrepreneurial University of the Year’, which comes after its success in 2012 when the university won 'University of the Year'.

The University of Leicester receives recognition for ‘Research Project of the Year’ for its work on the Discovery of Richard III, which means that the university has gained seven consecutive THE Awards.
