The Student Led Awards at Brunel aim to recognise and promote exceptional practice among members of University Staff. Each year the union gives students the opportunity to acknowledge individuals who stand out, inspire, motivate and engage with the student population. The scheme develops the Union’s partnership with the University, highlights the importance of student experience and amplifies student voice on campus. This year we have rebranded to encompass all important aspects of the student life.
