First-year Achievement Awards / Eerstejaarsprestasietoekennings / Amabhaso eMpumelelo waBafundi boNyaka wokuQala
The First Year Achievement Awards aims to recognise
lecturers who had a positive influence on the academic experience of first year students.
It also recognises top performing first-year
students within each faculty.
These students are asked to nominate one lecturer, whom they consider to have had a positive influence on their academic experience during their first year.
Both the students and nominated lecturers are invited to attend a prestigious dinner.
The Vice-Rector (Teaching and Learning), a number of Faculty Deans and Vice-Deans (Teaching and Learning), amongst others, also attend this prestigious event.
