STAR Awards

Celebrating the achievements of all of our clubs and societies.

What's it all about?

The annual Student Achievement and Recognition (STAR) Awards is one of the biggest and most important events in our calendar.

The STAR Awards exist to recognise and thank all our student volunteers for their incredible work over the year, within the Union, University and in our community.

Thank you for all you for all your efforts and congratulations to every single one of you that have been shortlisted or received a nomination.

We value each and every one of our volunteers and have heard so many inspiring stories over the years.  During Student Volunteer Week in February we want to share your stories and inspire others to get involved with volunteering so if you are interested in sharing your story please click here for more info. 


Congratulations to our STAR Award Winners 2022.  We had an amazing night celebrating all your achievements and a huge 'Thank You' from Strath Union for all that you do.
