Vice-Chancellor Awards

The VC Awards were launched in April and recognise the exceptional contribution staff make in delivering and supporting our strategic ambitions. Staff in any role within the University, including subsidiaries, can nominate a colleague or team for an award. There are 9 award categories this year, including an award for equality, diversity and inclusion and an additional one recognising the challenges presented by the global pandemic.

All the information you need to nominate your colleagues can be found here. Nominations close at midnight on Friday 24th September 2021.
