University Language Centre’s Dr John Morley wins Inaugural UMIP Innovation Award

20 August 2018

Congratulations to the University Language Centre’s Dr John Morley who has won the Digital Innovation category at the UMIP Innovation awards 2018.

Dr Morley’s popular online phraseology resource tool, the Academic Phrasebank, was created originally to assist non-native researchers to improve their academic writing.

Increasingly, the Academic Phrasebank is used by both non-native and native speakers to improve their writing from various subject areas. Another innovative characteristic is that the Phrasebank is not discipline-specific, ensuring inclusivity for all specialisms.

"This is great news and recognition for John but also for the Centre. Coming on top of the British Council visit (the Centre was ranked the #1 University Language Centre in the country), it means that the ULC has real impetus at the moment".

We continue to congratulate Dr John Morley and the rest of the fantastic winners within the University.
