I am incredibly proud to see that once again the work of our team has been recognised and I really hope that these amazing projects can be recognised.”

When announcing the shortlist, Vonnie Sandlan, President of NUS Scotland said, “[..] This is the part of my job that is most exciting, that is, seeing [Students’ Unions] being recognised for all the work you have done to make students’ lives better, make students experiences stronger and that our students are able to get the absolute best out of their education.”
