NUS Scotland Award winners announced

Students, students’ associations, staff and student media were recognised for their achievements over the past year at the inaugural NUS Scotland Awards, which took place on Saturday in Irvine at NUS Scotland’s national conference.

Jennifer Cadiz, Depute President of NUS Scotland said:

“We hosted the NUS Scotland Awards this year to celebrate the remarkable work that students and students’ associations across Scotland do day in and day out. The commitment of students and students’ associations is truly inspiring and it was amazing to have the opportunity to fully acknowledge this at the awards. The ceremony gave us the unique opportunity to highlight the incredible achievements of students and their students’ associations that too often goes unnoticed outside of their immediate campus or community.

“We received over 80 nominations for College Union, Student Media, Community Relations and Best Club/Society in just our first year which is an incredible starting point. In recognising these achievements in Scotland students are automatically entered into the national NUS Awards event. We hope that by recognising these student successes at the NUS Scotland Awards it will encourage other students to get involved with their union and broaden their student experience.”
