This year we are introducing awards to celebrate your involvement with learning and teaching or enhancing the student experience, and we want to hear about the contributions you are making at Westminster.

This award recognises students who have positively helped the university community in the areas of learning and teaching or student experience. There is one award of £500 available per Faculty.

We will be looking at the contributions students have made which have

  • influenced changes to specific learning and teaching practices or policies
  • encouraged the engagement of other students in university activities
  • enhanced the learning opportunities of peers
  • or promoted and championed diversity and equality.

Nomination process

Nominations for the awards are now open and will close on Friday 8 February at 5pm, with the winners announced in March.  Award winners will be honoured at the Student Union Appreciation Awards and at the Annual Learning and Teaching Celebration Event in May.


Award nominees can be studying at any level with the exception of Postgraduate Research (PhD). Nominations can be made by a course, Department or Cluster, Faculty, a member of staff or a fellow student.
