Volunteering, Clubs and Societies Awards

The SRC’s annual Volunteering, Clubs & Societies Awards celebrate the various achievements and success stories of affiliated societies.

The SRC’s annual award show is being revamped! It’s bigger and better with all new award categories.

Each year the SRC has successfully run the VCS awards but this year, the award show is being completely rejuvenated. Working alongside the University, with a new venue in the Kelvin Gallery, a buffet and drinks reception as well as all new awards, it is an event you would not be wanting to miss.

We want to celebrate the dedication and fantastic achievements that our clubs and societies have worked so hard towards throughout the year.

We have also decided this year to open two awards to the general student population allowing for anyone doing anything worthwhile to receive an award.

Therefore this year the VCS nominations were open to all students at Glasgow University! Nominations are now closed.

If you have been shortlisted for an award you will then be invited to the ceremony held on the 17th of February; keep the date in your diary!
