Annual Gala event
The UUSU Student Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate our fantastic students. They give us the opportunity to reward the individuals and teams who give their time freely to make a positive contribution to the experience of our students, and our local communities.
We ask for nominations in each category and this evidence will be looked at in combination with additional evidence from UUSU records, such as events held, money raised and numbers of students involved.
Awards are granted on the basis of a number of factors, depending on the category.
This guidance sets out each category, the criteria for each, and notes on how to submit the best nomination possible for your chosen person/group.
The selection panel for the awards will consist of UUSU staff and Student Officers, who will review all evidence available, including the internal records.
Categories for the Awards are below - click on each to find out more and fill in the nomination form!
