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. In normal circumstances, many secure work placements as a direct result of competing in the Awards, which often translate into permanent positions upon graduation but sadly this wasn't the case in 2020 due to the impact of Covid-19 on the industry. We continue to do all we can to support them.
Over the past 14 years over 1, 200 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. 2020 saw a talented and diverse group of contenders, with over 124 students nominated by their lecturers, representing 60 Universities. The Awards process is well underway for 2021, Universities from across the UK have nominated their top students and judging commences in February.
