Congratulations to Recipients of the ‘Doctoral College Outstanding Contribution Award’!

The Doctoral College team have been delighted with the nominations that have come in recently for the ‘Doctoral College Outstanding Contribution Awards’. We wish to extend our congratulations to all recipients who have recently received their award certificate.

Here are some of the heartfelt nominations we have received:

“She is an outstanding supervisor with vast knowledge and motivation that bring out the best in me. Her guidance and support continue to sharpen my research skills/critical thinking.”

“He has been an outstanding PGR Lead for the department. He wants the best experience for all the PGRs within the department and is supportive to their needs.”

“She is an inspirational academic always progressing students over their difficulties whether academic or life issues.”

“She is exceptionally efficient at her job which, I feel, is because she is able to empathise with the concerns facing those who contact her.”

“She always goes the extra mile to ensure everyone’s needs are met.”


Why not make someone’s day and take five minutes and nominate a PGR, academic or professional staff member for a Doctoral College Outstanding Contribution Award to say thanks and give recognition for their hard work?

These awards recognise the outstanding contributions to postgraduate research degrees at BU by any PGR, academic or professional staff member. They can be nominated throughout the year by any member of the postgraduate research community to anyone that they feel is exceptional, has exceeded expectations, and has had a positive impact on the postgraduate research culture at BU.


You can nominate anyone involved in postgraduate research at Bournemouth University to receive an award certificate. There are no award criteria, as long as the submission falls within the guidelines, whoever you’ve selected will receive a Doctoral College Outstanding Contribution Award!
