Newcastle University Awards

The Newcastle University Awards recognise your achievements and contribution to university life and the wider community.


These awards acknowledge students involved in extra-curricular activities, including:

  • clubs
  • societies
  • volunteering
  • fundraising
  • starting a new business
  • representing students
  • working on campus or beyond.

If you are a winner at any of the Celebrating Success Awards, you may be eligible to attend the Newcastle University Awards. You'll then be invited to a celebration dinner where awards are presented before an audience of students, university staff, graduate recruiters and city leaders. If you are an Undergraduate or Postgraduate Taught award winner, you will also receive formal recognition of your award on your degree transcript.

How to enter

Any current Newcastle University student can be nominated for the Celebrating Success Awards, either as an individual or as a member of a group.

If the activity you have been involved in was part of your degree, you must show how you have gone beyond the expectations and requirements of the activity.

Winners from the Celebrating Success Awards will be considered for the Newcastle University Awards, where they could potentially win any of the 'Outstanding Contribution' categories. Visit the Celebrating Success Awards website for more details.

If you aren’t sure how your activity might fit into the Celebrating Success Awards, please contact the Students' Union.
