The University of Strathclyde has been shortlisted in two categories of the prestigious Times Higher Education Awards.

Strathclyde is among the nominations for the Research Project of the Year (STEM) and Outstanding Support for Students awards.

The research nomination is for Limb Salvage, a pioneering technique for treating traumatic limb injuries which could reduce the need for amputations.

The student support shortlisting is for the Strathclyde Cares programme, which helps students with experience of the care system throughout their higher education journey, from pre-application to graduation and beyond.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 29 November.

The double nomination continues a long line of success for Strathclyde in the Education Awards. In recent years, the University has won: Research Project of the Year (2011); UK University of the Year (2012); Entrepreneurial University of the Year (2013) and Business School of the Year (2016). In addition, Professor Sir John Curtice, of Strathclyde’s School of Government & Public Policy, received the Lord Dearing Lifetime Achievement Award at the Times Higher Awards in 2017.

Times Higher Education editor John Gill said: "Times Higher Education is extremely proud to host these awards once again. In yet another record year for entries, and with over 70 institutions represented on the shortlist, it’s a genuine privilege for the THE team and our judges to read through these many and varied tales of excellence from all corners of the UK.

“It’s a significant achievement to make this shortlist, and we look forward to honouring all the finalists at the Grosvenor in November."
