Student group awards
Through creating events and activities, our Students’ Union student groups/societies and community groups provide students with opportunities to meet new people, learn new skills that could make a difference to your CV, and best of all, have fun. Our student groups build communities and friendships that can last a lifetime.
The society awards are about recognising the contributions, successes and impact delivered by our Students' Union societies. The awards and the criteria can be found below. The deadline for nominations is Friday 22 April 2022.
Student group of the year
This award goes to the student group who has made the biggest contribution to creating a positive student experience. These are student groups that have built a strong and connected community amongst their members and provided a regular programme of engaging and diverse activities and events.
Best new student group
Creating a new student group from scratch is challenging but rewarding. This award is for a new student group created since September 2021 which has exceeded expectations of a new group. They have built a strong and connected community amongst their members and created a regular programme of engaging and diverse activities and events.
Best student group event
Remember a great student group event? This award is for the student group who has delivered an interesting event online or memorable event since September 2021. The winner will have engaged most of their members and contributed to building a sense of community within their group and the University. The event will have been well-planned and executed and delivered within budget. And, it should have been accessible and inclusive, making the event welcoming to the diverse student body in the University.
Best committee member
Student group committee members play a central role in creating a sense of community through their student group's events and activities. This award is for a committee member who has excelled in their role and gone above and beyond the expectations of their duties.
