'Course Rep of the Year' awards are now open for nominations!

Nominations are now open for our 'Course Rep of the Year' awards for both colleges and universities within Scotland

The awards are part of the third sparqs Student Engagement Awards, taking place at the end of our conference on Thursday 28th March 2019. 

Nominations are invited for students who have been reps during 2017-18 and/or 2018-19. There are awards for both the college sector and the university sector.  We welcome nominations for volunteer reps (course reps, lead reps, school reps, etc) who have worked hard to ensure the rep role contributes to enhancements in learning and teaching and the overall student experience. 

The deadline for nominations is Friday 8th February 2019 and we look forward to receiving nominations from anyone who would like to highlight the contribution of an outstanding rep!   


Still time to submit for the institutional/SA awards categories.... deadline 11th January! 

Also currently still open for submissions are the four Awards categories for institutional/SA submissions:

  • University Impact
  • College Impact
  • Shaping the Curriculum
  • Engaging Diversely

Submissions covering the last couple of years are welcomed.... anything since the last Student Engagement Awards in March 2017. 

Please note that the deadline for submissions for these four categories is Friday 11th January 2019, so please get your entries in ASAP!


How to make your nominations/submissions
