Outstanding Contribution to the Life of the School Award 2016-17

We recognise the importance of engaging students with the life of the School by offering extra-curricular activities

We know that encouraging you to contribute actively to the life of the School is important, as it enables you to develop your sense of civic duty as well as your initiative and leadership skills.  

Contributing actively to the life of the School could include:

  • acting as a mentor, assistant or ambassador
  • being involved in the Modern Languages Society
  • representing your peers at the Staff Student Committee

Such social learning opportunities encourage you to take greater agency in your own learning by making you partners in the School’s learning community. They should also stand you in good stead long after you've graduated.

The Award

We've created the Outstanding Contribution to the Life of the School Award to show how much we value your contributions.

The Award will shortlist three final-year undergraduate students who've contributed to greatly enhancing cohesion and sense of community in the School through paid or voluntary activities during the course of their studies. You could also use what you do to work towards the Ncl+ Award!

The winner will be awarded £100. The two shortlisted candidates will receive £50 each. Awards will be made on Graduation Day.
