There is no need to apply directly for any specific award. If you put an application in highlighting what the person/ team achieved (in health and safety or in wellbeing), we will ensure it is considered on its own merits. The Vice-Chancellor personally reads all applications to decide which will win his own prestigious award.

Each application will be considered  on its own merits, and representatives may be invited to attend the prize-giving ceremony held at 10am on Thursday 30th November 2017.
