The University of Leicester Student Awards, hosted by the University of Leicester Students’ Union and the Career Development Service, are five years old.

The awards are in place to honour those of you who have excelled in a variety of endeavors from graduate internships to Union Council membership and a range of student group activities.

2017's event will take place on Wednesday 7th June. We invite guests and nominees who have been successfully shortlisted, along with representatives from the University and sponsors for an evening of celebration.

The Student Awards has grown every year. We were delighted to announce that this years ceremony was to be held at the Athena, Leicester’s leading events venue located in the heart of the cultural quarter. It is truly a testament to the hard work and dedication of University of Leicester students that we outgrew the Percy Gee!
