Aspire - Recognition of Excellence in Education

Education alongside Research as the Mission of a Medical, Dental and Veterinary School

Announcement of 2017 submissions

Award for Excellence in Education in Medical, Dental & Veterinary Schools

Excellence in teaching as well as in research has received increasing attention by public bodies, by students, and by schools and institutions.

ASPIRE initiative offers a mechanism where excellence in medical, dental and veterinary schools can be recognised in one or more of the following areas.

The criteria produced for excellence represent a de facto set of standards for ‘best practice’ in education and effectively outline what ‘best practice’ in these five areas should look like. The criteria have been refined following a series of pilot studies and a consultation process. 
The closing date for the 2017 round of submissions is 28th February 2017.  Full details of the submission process are on the website
