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 15 years over 1,300 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. 2021 saw a talented and diverse group of contenders, with over 119 students nominated by their lecturers, representing 54 Universities. The Awards process continued with the announcement of the thirteen regional winners in May and June and our National Best of Best Dinner was held at Claridge's London, in September, when Charity Zawadi Mwambeyu was declared the 2021 national winner.
