Previous Award Winners



This year's Superstar Award winners were recognised and celebrated at our Student Voice Awards.

Please visit our facebook page to view photos from the event.

It’s fantastic to see these staff members, and the Superstar Awards on the whole, recognised so widely this year. We had over 350 nominations and shortlisting was incredibly difficult due to the calibre of the nominees. The six eventual recipients recieved multiple nominations, often alongside long justifications of all the fantastic things they’ve done for University of Leicester students. It’s clear to see the massive impact they have on students at this institution.
