ECCI Nominated for Teaching Award

06 March 2015

ECCI has been nominated for the 'Best Learning Community’ in the Edinburgh University Student Association Teaching Awards.

The Teaching Awards recognise and reward good teaching practice at Edinburgh University. Students nominate a lecture, tutor, course or learning community that they think deserves an award.

The student who nominated ECCI had this to say:

“ECCI has provided me with a space like no other. I feel extremely privileged to have the opportunity to study within this iconic building and among such inspirational people.

Being welcomed to events hosted at the centre has been incredible informative; I have no doubt that my student experience (and essays) have benefited immeasurably from the knowledge I have gained from such events. Thank you.”

The EUSA Teaching Awards are finalised in April.

ECCI's Masters Hub is home to around 60 students studying to attain Masters degrees in topics related to ECCI's vision for a low carbon future.

The Masters courses on offer at ECCI are each sensitive to the fast-changing policy and business environment, and are particularly allied to the new and emerging industries for a low carbon society, which they aspire to help create.

Each programme provides access to leading businesses and government agencies, with benefits both for the students and the sectors in which they operate. Dynamic, innovative Master-level students are at the heart of ECCI's vision to create change in Scotland, the UK and the rest of the world.
