Last month we’ve decided to change the format of our regular Student of the Month competition.

We believe that societies and sports teams are an integral part of the overall university experience. This month we’ve asked students to put their society or sports team forward to be in with a chance of boosting their bank balance with £1,000.

We had 10 teams in the running for the prize, ranging from Gospel Choirs, Student Theater, Dance Clubs to Rowing, Surfing and Gaelic Football teams.

And the winner is…

The University of Birmingham Gaelic Football Club managed to get 708 votes, by running a very impressive social media campaign and getting their supporters behind them. The prize will enable them to pay to pay for the installation and cost of posts, badly needed at their university playing field.

We wish you all the best and many victories on your new pitch!
