Members of the RGU:Union team were rewarded for their outstanding efforts and achievements at this year's NUS Scotland Awards, with wins in two categories. The current Union team of Student Presidents and Vice Presidents were recognised as winners of the Officer Team of the Year award, while there was also success for fourth year International Business Management student, and current Union Vice President (Education), Ross Leven, who was named Student of the Year.

Ursula Ojiji, Student President (Communication & Democracy) said, "I am pleased with the tremendous success of our team of Presidents and Vice Presidents and what we have been able to achieve throughout this academic year. The hard work, dedication and teamwork has definitely paid off, but we couldn’t have succeeded without the backing of our great students, plus the support from staff at the Union and all across the University"

Ross, who was recently elected as Student President (Communication & Democracy) for 2020/21, a role which he will commence in August, said "I’m delighted to have been recognised at the NUS Scotland Awards. I'm incredibly grateful to work with the amazing team at RGU:Union. None of the work that we do as students would be possible without their support."

Congratulations to winners across all categories, from colleges and universities throughout the country.
