Each and every year the members of LSESU achieve the most amazing feats from delivering world leading conferences to campaigning for sector leading change. The aim of this week is to highlight and celebrate all of these wonderful achievements in style. Each day of the week will focus on a different community of students in the following order:
Monday - Societies
Tuesday - Sports Clubs
Wednesday - Campaigning, Activism & Academic Reps
Thursday - Teaching Awards
Friday - Union Wide
Make sure you follow our social media channels to keep up today with the announcements, shout outs, awards and more through out the week.
To find out more about the awards, their criteria and to nominate people, please see below.
LSESU societies deliver some of the most creative, innovative, professional and ambitious activities, that sometimes it is easy to question whether these are not just volunteer led activities! That is why we love to take the time to appreciate the range of activities with a whole day and 13 possible awards up for grabs.

Our determined and hard working AU Sports Clubs deliver high energy, high output and high table results despite being one of the only russell group unviersities to not have a sports department or course at the University. They make training the best is can be and the social times just as fun. How could we not celebrate their achievements outside of the competition when they have made such an effort to provide a community to students this year.

LSE and LSESU are known for leading the way for many things. The number one reason.... making change. Through innovative campaigning, listening ears, empowering voices and disruptive change. Our campaign groups have been leading local and national collectives this year so lets celebrate that power. Including the department based activism being delivered by our ever amazing academic reps.
Award for Excellent Academic Representation – Camille Bou & Brooke Scholes
Together, Camille and Brooke have effectively represented Health Policy PhD students and made an effort to ensure students’ voices are heard – despite the difficult circumstances we all found ourselves in this year. Camille was praised for having “actively promoted inclusivity and fostered a sense of fraternity during a very stressful period”, while Brooke was praised for connecting students with opportunities and providing suggestions to departmental staff on how to improve their programme. Camille and Brooke have gone above and beyond as academic representatives – thank you both!
Award for Advocacy – Melanie Atwood
Melanie has made a huge impact as an academic representative. In her nomination, it was said that “Melanie developed a new approach to SSLC meetings that has made the meetings more efficient and productive. Our students reps have always surveyed the students before each SSLC meeting, but Melanie takes it one step further. She creates a document with the main concerns raised in the survey and includes suggestions for how to address those concerns.” Melanie has been a dedicated and innovative academic representative this year. Congratulations!
Award for Outstanding Commitment – Faraz Khalid
We would like to recognise the outstanding commitment of Faraz Khalid. Faraz has gone above and beyond in advocating for his fellow students this year. Alongside serving as an academic representative, he has proposed a UGM motion, actively participated in student-led campaigns, and stood as an elections candidate. We would like to commend Faraz on his efforts, and thank him for his commitment to representing and advocating for his peers.
A big well done to our award winners and a huge thank you to all of our Academic Representatives for their work on representing student interests this year!
The 11 Campaign Groups we support through our Campaigns Hub have seen some incredible successes this year! Here are some of the big wins of the student-led movements:
The Honours are a way to reward the positive impact students have had on the LSE community, giving them the recognition they deserve and celebrating their achievements along the way.
