UPSU Icons

Icons is a programme designed to recognise all our Societies and Sports Clubs who go above and beyond to provide an excellent level of service, opportunity and experience for their members. It also helps the Sports & Societies team to achieve its strategic goals within the UPSU strategy and the University Sports strategy

The Icons Accreditation scheme uses a grading system

  • Mandatory – for ALL Sports Clubs and Societies
  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold

Over the course of the year, Societies and Sports Clubs will be encouraged to obtain either Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. These awards will then demonstrate to UPSU, the Exec Officers team, Plymouth University and the Student community that they are actively making a difference to develop and engage the members of their Society or Sports club

Every Society or Sports Club who achieves Bronze, Silver or Gold will be recognised on the UPSU website, raising their profile to UPSU and Plymouth University community.

There are a number of incentives for Societies and Sports Clubs, as well as increased recognition, which in turn should raise your membership base!

UPSU ICONS will be renewed annually.
