The 8th annual Union Awards are fast approaching and we’re really looking forward to celebrating another great year of student and staff success. With just 6 weeks to go until the event, we are now releasing the shortlisted nominees for both the Excellence in Learning and Teaching Awards and the Union Awards. This year is also set to be extra special as we celebrate 10 years of the Big Deal – bringing free sports, societies, recreational activities, additional skills training, events and paid representation to our students. Get ready to get all dressed up and enjoy what will be a fantastic evening.
