The National Student Awards seek out the best Built Environment degree students, highlighting to industry the necessity to link with Universities early in the education process and also improve the students’ knowledge of the career options available to them.  Many secure work placements as a direct result of competing in the Awards, which often translate into permanent positions upon graduation.

Over the past 17 years over 1,500 students have been through the Awards programme, which explores their course work, challenges their wider industry knowledge and encourages them to hone and develop their interpersonal skills. 2023 saw a talented and diverse group of contenders, with 109 students nominated by their lecturers, representing 53 Universities.  

Elsie Gribbon, an Interior Architecture and Design student studying at Birmingham City University, has taken the top prize in the 2023 Women in Property National Student Awards at the 'Best of the Best' Dinner at Claridge's in London, on Thursday 21 September 2023.

The 2024 programme is underway, with Universities being invited to nominate their top female students for the first round in the judging process.
