Voting now open for Placement Student Awards

Voting has now opened for Loughborough University’s Placement Student Awards.

The Awards celebrate students that have excelled in their placement, showcasing their outstanding achievement and enterprising initiative above their placement brief.

A total of 11 finalists have been selected from the University-wide nominations and they have been split into three categories – Private Sector (over 1,000), Private Sector (up to 1,000) and Public Sector – depending on where they spent their placement year.

Staff, students and the wider community are invited to cast their votes online here, and you can vote for one finalist in each of the categories.

The voting process will close on Tuesday 12 June and the winners will be revealed at the annual awards ceremony on Thursday 14 June.

As well as celebrating the outstanding achievements of the University’s placement students, the awards look to promote the transformative opportunities employers provide.

In 2015/16, 1,500 Loughborough students completed a placement and more than 600 employers supported a placement student.

The University is also rated in the top 10 for Graduate Prospects, in the Guardian and Complete University Guides 2017.
