SSTAR Awards 2018 - Nominations Now Open

Each year UPSU holds the prestigious SSTAR (Student and Staff, Teaching and Representation) Awards. These awards recognise the many excellent university staff members and dedicated students we have here at Plymouth University.

Launched in 2011, the awards, held this year on April 26th 2018, have grown year on year and are now a hugely celebrated and special event for staff and students at Plymouth University. They are an opportunity for us to say thank you to lecturers, support staff and students for all their hard work and support, whilst highlighting exactly what students think good teaching and support is.

You can nominate any student or any staff member, this means it can be someone from your previous years not just this current year. Everyone who is nominated will be informed, and if someone you nominate wins an award you will be invited to the awards ceremony too. 

You can submit this form as many times as you like to ensure you have the opportunity to nominate as many people as you like!
