UZH Teaching Award

A good teacher inspires, sparks curiosity and makes complex subjects accessible. Since 2007, UZH has been recognizing excellence in teaching through the "Credit Suisse Award for Best Teaching". Here you can find out more about how our award winners enthuse and inspire their students. (content in German)

Teaching Award Survey

It is important to us at UZH to have a broad discussion about quality in teaching. Every year, we therefore ask students to nominate their favorite instructors for the Teaching Award.  A jury comprising three representatives of the University of Zurich Student Association (VSUZH) and the Vice President Education and Student Affairs then pick the winner. You can find out more about the Teaching Award survey and the award procedure on the UZH for Teaching Staff website.
