Awards & Recognition

RUSU have two award schemes which recognise and award students and staff. Both schemes are student-led, meaning we ask our members; the students of the University of Reading, to nominate potential winners – so please take part and nominate someone you know to receive special recognition for their hard work and dedication when the Excellence Awards open later this year.
