THE STUDENTS' UNION AWARDS 2020

It’s our favourite time of the year - our annual Students’ Union Awards! We understand that these are uncertain times, but we were certain of one thing - nothing was going to stop us from celebrating the amazing achievements of the Birkbeck community this year! As we're not able to hold a physical ceremony,  this year The Students' Union Awards will be taking place entirely online, and this is your primary destination to all news hot off the press!
