STARS Awards

The Student Training Awards & Recognition Scheme is a programme that is developed to help our clubs and societies hit a base standard of operating for its members and to recognise well run, fun and inclusive groups.


The Student Training and Recognition Awards is a scheme to help student groups develop in areas that relate to LSESU core values. This is an opportunity for you to achieve your goals and boost yourself to be one of the sector leading Societies and Sports Clubs - another fab way of attracting sponsors!

How it works

The scheme has five core areas: Community, Collaboration, Inclusion, Information & Specialist. All groups have to cover the first four areas, but you can only earn points from one specialism area - this will be what the category of your student group falls into. 


We have just updated the criteria for 2020-21 and you can download the PDF below! We have taken your feedback on board and made sure that the criteria is all still do-able in this current COVID-19 climate.
