It’s time to recognise another set of shining stars as one of the most prestigious and exciting events in our calendar is back – Guild Awards.

Now in its ninth year, the awards are designed to reward those individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to improve the lives of students at the University of Liverpool and the community in which they live, including support staff, Course Reps, volunteers or students who have campaigned on issues.

Think of someone who has genuinely enhanced your time here – is it a Course Rep who has made a massive difference to your course, a Society that has completely transformed your University experience, or a Halls’ Student Committee that has made your year in Halls unforgettable.There might be an amazing project in the Guild that has enhanced your extracurricular experience or a hard working committee member, a volunteer in the local community, or a student who has campaigned on an issue who you feel deserves recognition. 

And the awards this year are:

  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Science and Engineering
  • Health and Life Sciences
