Welcome from your President

Hello CUSU Members, 

Welcome to the CUSU Awards. My name is Catarina, and I am the President of Coventry University Students’ Union. For those of you who do not know, the CUSU Awards is one of the biggest Awards nights hosted by the Students’ Union recognising the amazing achievements of you our students.  

Since the COVID-19 Pandemic started the Awards have looked very different, as they went virtual for two consecutive years, but still celebrated all the dedication and hard work of our students. This year we will be hosting this amazing celebration in Square One. Every year the SU, and our students take strides to improve the student experience, sustainability and ensure a better future, and this year will be no different. 

The CUSU Awards are open for all students to apply for and is a chance for you to be recognised for all your hard work and achievements outside of your academic life. This could be leading a brand-new campaign or shaping students experience through the Rep system. You can see below the 10 Awards that are available, as you could be the next winner. 

The CUSU Awards are a great chance for you to be recognised for your hard work, and showcase this to future employers. Why not start thinking now of how you can be part of this prestigious event.
