Winners of NUS Scotland Awards 2023 announced!

The NUS Scotland awards are an annual celebration of the excellent work students’ associations, officers and staff do across Scotland. They are an opportunity to applaud the unsung heroes from the movement, whilst reflecting on the standout stories and achievements of the past year.

They are a great opportunity to recognise the hard work and excellence of everyone within the movement over the last year. This is done by nominating - it is an opportunity to share best practice, showcase outstanding results, and recognise the impact of students’ associations and what they do to make a difference to students in their everyday lives.

NUS Scotland's Awards Ceremony 2023 was held at Surgeons Quarter, Edinburgh, on 28th March, as part of NUS Scotland's annual conference. The ceremony was a sold out event, attended by students and staff members from colleges and universities, as well as experts from across the education sector. 

We're now delighted to announce the winners for the 9 different awards for individuals, students associations, and societies!
