Every year the Lecturer of the Year award is awarded to an excellent lecturer.

Good lecturers are at the heart of education. Lecturers enthuse and inspire students. As UvA, we are proud of our lecturers. Therefore, students of the Central Student Council and ASVA Student Union, together with the staff of the Teaching & Learning Centres, organise the annual UvA Lecturer of the Year award.

Based on the number of votes, a faculty winner will be determined for each faculty. The faculty winners will compete for UvA Lecturer of the Year 2021.
