From outstanding athletes to incredible institutions, BUCS Awards celebrate the achievements across each season

Every year, our Awards celebrate the successes across each season. Following a nomination and selection process, winners of each award are revealed at our annual Awards Dinner.

2020 Awards

We are looking for your help to choose our award winners for the 2019-20 season. Whether or not you work in the higher education sector, we value the knowledge and experience you could bring. 

We estimate the amount of time involved would be a couple of hours reading nominations and a couple of hours meeting as a panel. The review meeting is likely to take place in the week beginning Monday 9 November, so you’ll need to have some time around that period.

The 2020 Awards will take place in December. With nominations opening soon, make sure you check this page regullary for any updates.
