MDXSU are excited to announce the shortlist for the MDXSU Awards 2019, celebrating the achievements of Middlesex University students over the past year.


We received hundreds of nominations from students and staff throughout the nominations period, which closed on April 3rd. There are ten awards in total, recognising this year's best societies, events and the outstanding contribution of student leaders.


Panels made up of elected student representatives and MDXSU and University staff reviewed the nominations and finalised the shortlists for each category, which you can now view below.


The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony in a central London venue from 6pm on Thursday 2 May, which all shortlisted students will be invited to. This is a free event, including a three-course meal and entertainment, as well as the all-important results! All shortlisted students will receive an invite directly or, if you are part of a shortlisted group, via the Society President. If you have any queries, please contact studentevents@mdx.ac.uk.


Even if you're not attending the ceremony, follow #MDXSUAwards on our Instagram and Twitter for the results as they come in
