At an awards ceremony last week, we came together to celebrate the work of some of Solent University’s most dedicated and exceptional staff at the STAR Awards. The STAR Awards are about giving you the opportunity to recognise and thank lecturers, support staff and many more for their hard work, innovative approach to learning and support throughout your studies.

Your Sabbatical Officers and Union staff were joined by the shortlisted members of staff and the students who had nominated them for the event. It was brilliant to see that students wanted to recognise so many members of staff, as this year we received a record-breaking number of nominations.
