The Partnership Awards 2021

The Partnership Awards celebrate the achievements of University staff, students and postgraduate researchers who have gone above and beyond to make the Leeds learning experience so brilliant.

This year we will once again be taking the time to appreciate the people who bring the Leeds Partnership to life and reward the amazing difference those groups or individuals have made.

Here is the full round up of Faculty Partnership winners and runners – huge congratulations!
