On Friday 10th July UBU will host our seventh annual Student Leadership Awards in a special online ceremony. The awards celebrate our student leaders — who volunteer in both the local and student communities, making positive contributions to the services and opportunities in which they engage.
During the evening we will be celebrating students who volunteer in a number of Union-led actives including sports clubs, activity groups, democracy, volunteering, and student representation.
