We are proud to announce that the first ever NUS International Students’ Awards will be hosted at this year’s International Students’ Conference on Thursday 10 March 2016.
We believe that it is vitally important to recognise, reward and celebrate the hard work and achievements of international students throughout colleges and universities over the last year.
This year has been a tough one for international students, from changes to immigration laws making it tougher than ever to come to study and work in the UK, to an increasingly hateful and intolerant ideology from the ever more conservative government. It hasn’t been all doom and gloom however and students’ unions across the country have done an incredible job in defending the rights of international students.
To celebrate this, we will be awarding a winner and runner up under three categories;
- International Student of the Year
- International Students’ Officer of the Year
- International Student Campaign of the Year.
Winners will decided by a panel of judges from across the sector.
The awards will be presented on the Friday evening of International Students’ Conference at the first ever gala dinner. If you haven’t registered for conference already you can do so here.
If there’s something that you’re proud of and want to celebrate, or know someone else who you think has been a fantastic advocate for international students, fill in a nomination form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations are open from Monday 8 until Wednesday 24 March 2016.
