Nominees for the Enriching Student Life Awards Announced
9 April 2013
In its third year, the annual Enriching Student Life Awards aim to recognise the outstanding support and guidance given to students from a range of staff, be that academic or administrative.
This year saw an unprecedented number of nominations from students, highlighting the sheer amount of staff members who go the extra mile to support their students.
Beth Button, Education and University Affairs Officer said: "Coming up with a shortlist from the huge number of nominations was very hard, not only due to the large quantity, but the incredible quality of the nominations.
"Each and every staff member nominated clearly goes above and beyond to help their students, and this was demonstrated through the nominations and testimonies we received.
