Enterprising Mind of the Year Award 2018

Consider what have you done that is truly creative, innovative, original and worthy of an award in one of your modules or as a direct result of what you have learned in your module.

The Students’ Association in collaboration with the Proctor’s Office is introducing a prize for the student who has displayed significant enterprise in and through their studies.

An enterprising mind is defined very broadly as creating value in the form of novel ideas or fresh applications or adventurous methods or thinking outside of the box.  This can be evidenced by your work directly within the module itself or indirectly through related cultural, social, economic or practical activities which are clearly linked very closely to a module you have studied.  To provide you with some indicative pointers as to what an enterprising mind might look like, we have invented some case studies which can be found by clicking on the link below.

All you need to do to enter is to submit EITHER an audio or video podcast of up to three minutes in length OR a text (Word) document of between 500 and 1000 words to explain what you have done in relation to any module taught in the calendar year 2018.  The prize for the best submission is £250 and, more importantly, the considerable prestige, kudos and status as the University’s Enterprising Mind of the Year.  The Award will also appear on your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) Transcript.
