Aberystwyth University’s Students’ Union won two top awards at the NUS Wales Awards 2014 which were held on Wednesday 26 March.

Welfare Officer Laura Dickens won the Campaign of the Year award for her work on student housing, and the Union won the Officer Team of the Year award.

The Union was shortlisted for three awards; Higher Education Students’ Union of the Year, Campaign of the Year and Officer Team of the Year.

The winners are now automatically shortlisted for the UK-wide NUS Awards.

Speaking after it was announced that the Students’ Union had been shortlisted for three awards, Professor John Grattan, Pro Vice-Chancellor for International and Student Experience said; “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.”

Also speaking before the winners were announced, John Glasby, Chief Executive of Aberystwyth University’s Students’ Union said; “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.”
