Great news for four students at different stages of degrees involving French at Stirling who have all been invited to attend an interview for a Stevenson Exchange Scholarship for projects they plan to undertake while abroad over the next academic year. We hope to be able to give more details on the projects and the students’ successes after the interviews in late-April but, in the meantime, they know who they are and we wish them the best of luck for their interviews! (In the interests of full disclosure, 3 of the 4 have submitted proposals for projects in Spain but all are students taking French…)
Great news too on the staff front with news of nominations for this year’s RATE awards (Stirling University’s student-led prizes for excellence in teaching) with Fiona Barclay, Brigitte Depret, Mathilde Mazau and Cristina Johnston in the running for a range of awards including the ‘I love my tutor’ award, for ‘Excellence in Teaching in the Arts and Humanities’ and for ‘Outstanding Professional Mentoring and Personal Development’. Again, more news on these nominations to come later this month but congratulations to all colleagues who’ve been nominated and thank you to the students who did the nominating – it’s very much appreciated!
