Every year the UEA Award holds a celebration ceremony for Award students. This is a very special event where students will receive their UEA Award certificates, and will have a chance to share their experiences on the Award including what they have gained and the activities they’ve been part of. Employers who help with the UEA Award also come along and talk about why they are involved in the Award and how the Award can help students in their future careers. We also give special prizes across a range of categories to students who’ve made a great contribution. The event finishes with a buffet and drinks after the ceremony, which marks a perfect opportunity to talk with the wide range of students, staff and employers present.
Last year's event took place on the 8th March, in the Thomas Paine Lecture Theatre and Foyer. For the first time, we included a fun photo booth to help students remember the night in style. We have produced a video of the night below!
We also awarded four special prizes, in addition to awarding students their certificates. Last year's winners were:
- Disha Ramjuttun - Outstanding contribution to campus and community life;
- Thaís Naves Tannús - Outstanding achievement in work or volunteering;
- Lois Arcari - Outstanding academic attribute development;
- Sandra Tse - Best reflective write up.
This academic year, the UEA Award Ceremony will be held in May 2019.
