Well, that’s it for another year – the glitter has been packed away, but the memories from the Golden Roses celebrations will remain as will all of the fantastic student testimony about amazing practice at UCLan. We are pleased to announce this year’s Winners for the Annual Golden Roses!

This year we had three Golden Roses Awards Ceremonies, Burnley, Westlakes & the Annual Ceremony in Preston! We had a record-breaking year with over 1,000 Golden Roses nominations submitted in total! Our panels then met and had the difficult task to review anonymised nominations and decide on the shortlists and winners.

Last week we all enjoyed an evening in 53 Degrees where the achievements of University Staff and Students in Academic Representation were celebrated. All of those shortlisted received certificates as well as the winners receiving their certificates and trophies. We were treated to a beautiful performance by the Staff Choir and food from the Students' Union Catering Team. Thank you to all who attended the event and for your continued support for the Golden Roses!
