We are pleased to announce the launch of the National Societies Awards, which will be hosted by the University of the West of England (UWE, Bristol) as the first of an annual awards ceremony.
Societies have yet to gain formal recognition for their considerable contribution to the progression of student learning, career development and student experience at university.
The National Societies Awards (NSAs) aims to credit societies' exceptional efforts and grant them national acknowledgement for their contribution to the student experience. The event will result in the students striving to ‘do more’ and ‘be more’ to be provided with the highest level of recognition for their efforts and achievements. This in turn will enhance their employability and graduate opportunities.
Richard Brooks, NUS Vice President Union Development, said: “I have experienced first-hand the power and opportunity that student societies can bring to someone's life. It's so exciting to see student leaders get together to organise an event like this and to reward excellence amongst their peers. I am supporting the awards as a space for us to show our admiration for each other's achievements.”
The black-tie awards ceremony will take place on Saturday 4 June 2016 at the Exhibition Conference Centre, UWE. Tickets are priced at £35 and include a three-course meal, drinks and after-party at The Students’ Union at UWE’s new bar venue.
