NUS award nomination for Students’ UnionThursday 23 June 2016
Liverpool Hope University Students’ Union (SU) has been shortlisted in the NUS Awards 2016.
The team is nominated in the Small and Specialist category for the hard work it does to improve the student experience.
Despite competition from Students’ Unions at Glyndwr Guild, University of Cumbria, Cambridge University and University for the Creative Arts, the team are hoping to scoop the coveted award.
Students’ Union President Kira Cox said: “We're really proud to have been shortlisted for the Small and Specialist Union award, we've really got ourselves involved nationally this year - we've even been asked to open the conference!
“Our SU has come on leaps and bounds over the past couple of years, evident in our huge NSS increase, the constant rise in the number of clubs and societies we have, and the fact we've gone from one to three full-time staff members. We're up against some tough competition, but fingers crossed we can bring the trophy back to Hope!"
The winners will be announced on Wednesday 6th July, at a special awards evening held in conjunction with the NUS Commercial Summit at Liverpool Exhibition Centre.
News of the nomination follows the recent success of Students’ Union Vice President for Education Pranay Raj Shakya, who was shortlisted for International Students’ Officer of the Year by the NUS.
Run by the NUS, the awards were open to every university in the UK and recognised the positive impact of international students on campuses and society.
