Student-Led Teaching Awards for Centre of Development Studies Academics

last modified May 23, 2017 03:53 PM

Congratulations to Dr Gay Meeks who won the 'Lecturer' category at the 2017 Student Led Teaching Awards. Recognition was also given to Dr Richard Sidebottom, who was also short listed.  The Awards are organised by the Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU). This year they received 590 nominations from students eager to reward and celebrate the outstanding efforts of lecturing, teaching, supervising, teaching support and pastoral support staff from across the collegiate university. 

 

We are delighted and proud to see that the Centre has gone from no.8 (2015) to no.6 (2016) to no.4 (2017) in the field of Development Studies in the QS Survey. This would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work from everyone within the Centre.

Message from the director: You will be pleased to know that we have moved up from 8 in 2015 to 6 this year in the QS world ranking for Development Studies. This is a remarkable result and a great tribute to the tremendous efforts of the whole team of teachers and administrators. It's a fantastic result! Professor Peter Nolan

Congratulations to PhD student Nungari Mwangi who was awarded the 2016 Andrew E Rice Award from the Society for International development!
