Computing Science wins School Rep Research (PGR) Award

Newcastle University Student’s Union celebrated the amazing achievements of its student representatives at the Student Rep Awards.

On Monday 8th May, Newcastle University Student’s Union celebrated the amazing achievements of its student representatives at the Student Rep Awards.

The Student Rep Awards are an annual awards scheme designed to recognise the brilliant work of Academic Reps, Community Reps, Hall Reps, NUSU Part-time Officers and students who have campaigned for a better University experience.

With 81 nominations received from students and University and NUSU staff, the competition was often intense.

The winner for the School Rep Research (PGR) of the Year went to Timur Osadchiy from Computing Science. Congratulations to Timur!

Here is a statement from Timur about the award:

"It’s an honour to become the PGR student rep of the year. Of course, it wouldn’t happen without a big team of people who constantly dedicate themselves to make our school even better. I’m talking about the school’s student representation community who make their best efforts so that every single student voice is heard. And especially the students who spot opportunities for a better change and trust us to represent them. I’m even more inspired when I see those changes happening thanks to the school and the faculty administration. At the same time, there are still big challenges ahead but I perceive those rather as opportunities and for me personally the award is a sign that we’re heading to the right direction."
