Sarah Mottram, student of the year 2016

Student of the year

Argyll College UHI Student of the year 2017

Do you know a student who you think should be rewarded for their endeavours? You have just a few days left to submit your nominations as the deadline for entries is Wednesday 31 May.

The student of the year awards are designed to encourage and celebrate achievement in our student community.  The criteria has been deliberately left loose to allow scope for a variety of entries for numerous reasons which could include: academic or personal achievement, overcoming exceptional hardships on order to achieve, or exceptional contribution to the student community.

Nominations can be made by staff and students, and you can even nominate yourself.

There will be an FE (Futher Education)  winner and a HE (Higher Education) winner and each will receive a prize of £150 and an award at the Graduation Ceremony in October. The winner for Higher Education will automatically go forward to the overall UHI Student of the Year 2017 finals.

If you, or someone you know could be a worthy contender for the 2017 title, for either the Further Education or Higher Education Award, then please download and complete the relevant nomination form and return it to your local centre manager or email it to
