The Student Choice Awards allow students to nominate USW staff and students who have made a real difference to their learning and development and recognise innovative and inspiring teaching practices. USW Students work with the Students’ Union to organise and deliver the awards. This is fifth year of the Student Choice Awards.


The nominations for the Student Choice Awards are now closed. We had an amazing 1,319 individual nominations!
