Celebrating Our Students

Students’ Union Awards

Showcasing and celebrating the achievements of the Students’ Union clubs and societies.


 

The SU Awards presentation event highlights the achievements of clubs and societies whilst also recognising student success and participation in entrepreneurship and volunteering.

Many of the clubs, societies and students are making a significant, positive impact on local, national and international communities. These awards provide an ideal platform for the Students’ Union to showcase and celebrate this work.

"The SU Awards is an annual celebration event acknowledging the amazing achievements of Queen's students and the impact they have on society though over 200 clubs and societies, entrepreneurship projects and volunteering. Much of this activity has a significant impact on local, national and international communities. Employers like us also value the transferable skills that students develop such as teamwork, innovative thinking, communication and relationship building."

Enhancing Leadership Skills

Inspiring Leaders

Equipping students and strengthening their understanding and practice of leadership skills.


 

Inspiring Leaders is an initiative coordinated by Volunteer SU (Queen’s University Students’ Union) and facilitated by The William J Clinton Leadership Institute and Careers, Employability and Skills at Queen’s University. The programme targets students volunteering in positions of leadership with the aim being to strengthen their understanding and practice of leadership skills, and enabling the participants to translate their volunteering experiences into tangible employability skills.

The programme involves a ‘Meet the Leaders’ initiative where students have the opportunity to network with leaders from a range of backgrounds, including political, academic, business and the charitable and voluntary sectors.

"The skills that students will develop through this programme, such as leadership, relationship building, working under pressure and innovation are what we and other employers value highly. As one of the largest graduate employers in the region, we see this sponsorship as a commitment to help strengthen the future talent pool. Building on the great work by Queen's Careers, Employability and Skills in conjunction with The William J. Clinton Leadership Institute, PwC are looking forward to driving this initiative forward."
