UEL Students Union Awards

students studying at UEL

Inspirational achievement was the theme of this year’s UEL Students’ Union Awards. It was a chance to look back on 12 months of hard work by the students, their Union and their tutors.  More than 150 excited guests took part in the celebrations at the capital’s Sway Bar.

“The atmosphere in this room is amazing,” said UEL’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor John Joughin, as he handed out some of the awards to students. “The secret of UEL has always been the close connection between our students and staff.”

The awards have become a much sought after accolade, taking a lot of effort from our students to organise. As well as student awards, every year UEL learners nominate those tutors they wish to recognise publicly. They acknowledge staff who have gone above and beyond.
