Lancaster University has won the Outstanding Student Admissions Team award at the annual Times Higher Education  Leadership and Management Awards 2012.

The award was presented to Lancaster’s faculty and central postgraduate admissions team by Julian Clary during a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, which was attended by over eight hundred guests.

One of the judges, Ken Sloan, registrar at Warwick, said: “The submission focused on developments and changes the team made in its approach to postgraduate admissions, all made during a time of institutional change. This showed them to be exceptional.”

Lancaster’s Dean of Graduate Studies Professor Geraint Johnes said: “I'm delighted to hear the news of the award which is well earned recognition of the hard and excellent work done by our PG admissions team (across the whole university) during a period of rapid change.”

Postgraduate students make up a third of the student population at Lancaster University, which has an excellent reputation for both teaching and research.

John Gill, editor of Times Higher Education, said: “The sector should take great reassurance from the extraordinary examples of creativity, commitment and sheer hard work that the awards judges have recognised.”
