The Student Achievement Awards are RGU:Union's annual celebration of the outstanding work and commitment of student volunteers, societies and groups. RGU:Union provides a huge number of opportunities for students to get involved, and each year thousands of students join these groups and volunteer tens of thousands of hours to supporting students, running events and improving the student experience. There are a wide range of awards that are open to students and societies. 


This year's event takes place on Saturday 14th April at the DoubleTree by Hilton Treetops Hotel. Tickets are priced at £35, and include a three course meal, half bottle of wine per person, arrival drink, plus the award presentation ceremony, ceilidh/disco, and transport back into town from the venue at the end of the night.

You can buy your ticket(s) from the Deeview Student Store on Union Way.
