Celebration Event 2016: Celebrate good times, come on!

On 7th June 2016 we welcomed around 120 students, employers and staff to our annual event to recognise our student’s achievements.

The event celebrated not only Award completers, but the achievements of students who had excelled through the presentation of employer-supported prizes.

Students met employers, employers met students; all while enjoying delicious canapes, cupcakes and refreshments. This was a chance to network, championing the partnerships formed and the opportunities the Award brings.

The event was hosted by Stephen Dudderidge, Deputy Registrar, and began with an inspiring talk from Nottingham alumna Lisa Murkin. Lisa spoke about her experiences on the Award and what she had been up to in her year since graduating.


It was now time for the award giving to begin,starting with Module of the Year Prize. It was collected by Ziyad Yehia on the behalf of Public Speaking.


Students were then invited up to the stage to collect their completion certificates from Professor Sarah Speight, Academic Director of the Nottingham Advantage Award.


Finally, the highly commended and winners of our employer-supported prizes were presented with their awards. These prizes were supported by our employer partners in Accenture, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Experian, EY, GSK, Mars and Teach First.

The final prize was the Vice Chancellor’s Global Graduate Prize presented to Kimberley Onjun.
