NUSU Runner Up at the Guardian Awards

NUSU News

Newcastle University Students’ Union are now the proud owners of a Runner Up Guardian Award after a very successful night in London on Wednesday.

NUSU’s Inclusive Newcastle programme, which aims to help both students and teams in accessing sport through schemes including Earn Your Stripes, scooped second place at the ceremony in the ‘Student Experience’ category, narrowly missing out on the top spot to Imperial College London.

Liam Isaac, Inclusive Newcastle Co-ordinator at NUSU, said: “It has been such a fantastic achievement for us to have been shortlisted in the Guardian Awards, let alone taking home the Runner Up prize.

“It really is testament to the hard work of our clubs and staff in making sure that all Newcastle students can access sport whilst at University and I hope that we can have even more success in the future.”

Wednesday night also proved successful for Newcastle University as the institution picked up the Runner Up award in the Business Partnership category.   

Jack Taylor, NUSU President, said: “The Students’ Union is immensely proud of everyone who has contributed to the success of Inclusive Newcastle and all of the students and clubs who have helped the SU implement such an important scheme.

“The Guardian University Awards hold so much esteem and to have been recognised by them is a great honour.”

NUSU will also be heading to Manchester in April for the Educate North Awards where they have been recognised in two categories, Student Experience for the Inclusive Newcastle programme and Students’ Union of the Year – with hopes in making it two years in a row.

The University have also been shortlisted in the Educate North Awards in the categories for Business/Industry Collaboration, Environmental Industry and University of the Year.
