Global Experience Student of the Year

This award acknowledges the importance of our students who have taken the jump and gone global! As we now operate in a global economy the demand for students to demonstrate their global awareness has never been more important. As quoted by top international employer Price WaterHouse Cooper: “What global companies look for are people who can take a global perspective. If students have demonstrated they can work with other cultures and teams, that’s a big plus for us”.

Volunteer of the Year

The Volunteer of the Year Award recognises exceptional student volunteers who have made an outstanding contribution to a voluntary or not-for-profit organisation, making a real impact on their work. In turn, the nominated students have developed a wide range of fantastic skills which will benefit them in their future careers.

Arts, Creative Industries and Education Student of the Year

Are you a student in the faculty of Arts, Creative Industries or Education? Have you completed any form of work experience in the last 12 months? If so, you are eligible to nominate yourself for this award.

All we need to know is a few details about what you did, and what you learnt! Easy right? 

We recognise that students in our faculty have a multitude of ways to gain industry related work experience to help them develop their skills and ambitions: a self-directed project, paid commission, selling artwork or designs online, a research project or event, an internship, voluntary work and everything else! It's all valuable experience and we'd like to hear about what you did and what you learnt so that we can celebrate the creative problem solving and tenacious attitudes of students in our faculty.

Undergraduate Mentee of the Year Award

Our Undergraduate Mentee of the Year Award recognises students who have taken part in our Equity Mentoring Scheme.
