Volunteering, Clubs and Societies (VCS) Awards

The SRC’s annual Volunteering, Clubs & Societies Awards celebrate the various achievements and success stories of our students

The SRC’s annual award show for recognising volunteers, clubs and societies on campus is back!

Last year, in collaboration with the University, the ceremony was held in the Kelvin Gallery alongside a buffet and drinks reception. This night was used as an opportunity to celebrate all the hard work that students at the University of Glasgow had done and that had allowed them to gain graduate attributes, which are transferable skills that can be used in working life.

We want to celebrate the dedication and fantastic achievements that our clubs and societies have worked so hard towards throughout the year, and to allow our volunteers an opportunity to showcase themselves.

This year, we have also decided to open one award to the general student population allowing for anyone doing anything worthwhile to receive acknowledgement.

Nominations are now open!

If you have been shortlisted for an award you will then be invited to the ceremony which will be held on the 16th of February so please keep the date in your diary!
