Recognise a student who has made a difference

On 24 November 2022, we will be holding the 10th Annual School of Nursing and Allied Health Student Awards. These celebrate the considerable achievements of our students. In addition, the awards give students a chance to recognise the important impact of colleagues in placement areas on their learning experiences.

How to nominate

Nominations are invited from students, LJMU staff, health and social care professionals or service users/carers, depending on the award category.
