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.
You need to be logged in to vote. If you're a member of staff and don't have an account, please create one.
