Your Employability

These awards recognise all the hard work and achievement of students and it is often this that makes you attractive to employers, not necessarily your degree. The skills you develop as a volunteer, the experience and the achievements you can show will all help you stand out at application stage and be relevant at interview.

Annual Awards

We have three big awards nights every year; Education Awards (30th March), Activities Awards (31st March) and Annual Awards (12th May). If you know a student or student group you think deserved recognition, please click on the link below.
