Aberystwyth University’s Students’ Union has been shortlisted for three awards in the NUS Wales Awards 2014.

Celebrating the achievements of the Students’ Union, the Union has been shortlisted for the awards of Higher Education Students’ Union of the Year; Campaign of the Year for the Housing campaign driven by Welfare Officer, Laura Dickens; and Officer Team of the Year.

Professor John Grattan, Pro Vice-Chancellor for International and Student Experience commented: “I am very pleased that the Students’ Union and the officer team at the Union, have been recognised for all their hard work.

“The student voice is extremely important at Aberystwyth, and a core part of student life and I congratulate the officer team on driving and delivering an excellent student experience for all our students.”

John Glasby, Chief Executive of Aberystwyth University’s Students’ Union explained; “I am delighted that AberSU has been shortlisted for several national awards, particularly Higher Education Students’ Union of the year. This is testament to the hard work and dedication of staff and officers who have endured a difficult 18 months as we attempt to turn the organisation around and make it fit for purpose for future students. We still have a long way to go, but much has already been achieved and it is very pleasing to see this recognised by our peers.”

Over 90 nominations were received, and winners of the awards will be announced this evening, Wednesday 26 March, at the annual NUS Wales Awards dinner.
