Westminster Active Student Award

What is this award about?

Following the success of our inaugural celebration last year, the Career Development Centre will be hosting a similar event on 5 June, this year, where three of our most outstanding volunteers will be honoured for their exceptional volunteering achievements alongside fellow students who have participated in other similar schemes.

The honour is in the form of a Certificate of Achievement that is given out by the Vice-Chancellor in recognition of the exceptional impact that the students have made in both their personal development and/or in the support they have given to their fellow students and the wider community.

Present at the event will also be key staff members and invited guests.
