How to enter

The Specialist Institution Awards are now open to enter. You can nominate a student for an award, or students can nominate themselves.

There are six award categories in total – review details for each category by visiting The Awards section of this website. Once you’ve decided which award/s you would like to enter, please fill in the form below. In up to 300 words, you need to explain why you (or your nominated student) meets our criteria and why they deserve to be recognised as a shining example of student success within our institutions.

Within your 300 words, feel free to include links to YouTube, blogs, websites or any other external resources which will support your entry.

Each entry will need to include a member of staff from the University or a Students’ Union member who can act as a referee.

You are welcome to enter as many categories as you like, but you will need to complete a new form for each category. The deadline for entries is Monday 31 October. Nominated students must be available to attend the Awards Ceremony on Tuesday 29 November.


Nominations have now closed.
