Student Awards 2020 | The Winners!

Student Awards stage fand lights for 2019 Awards Night 2019

This week we’ve celebrated the achievements of hundreds of students, over 39 different awards and three evenings - all virtually!

We definitely missed seeing you all in person, but it was amazing having over 400 of you tune in over the week to see our first ever virtual awards ceremony. 

Congratulations to all of our winners and to those nominated. You should all feel really proud of your achievements. We’ll be in touch with the winners soon to arrange your prizes!

We hope to be able to celebrate with you all in person at some point in the near future - and we’ll make sure the Student Awards 2021 is bigger and better than ever!
