Nottingham Trent Students’ Union president just missed out on taking the top title in a national higher education award scheme.

Bradley Fox was nominated for the National Wonkhe award 2019, which recognises work carried out across higher education on a national level.

The former Trent University student was nominated for a blog post he wrote that centred around why students should be at the heart of strategic development within universities.

The awards ceremony was held on Monday as part of Wonkfest 2019 inside the Business Design Centre in London.

Bradley expressed his delight at being nominated for the award and what it means for Nottingham Trent:

“It shows that the work we are doing at NTU is sector-leading”

He said: “Since I became president I have really grown to love working in the sector. I am very proud to be nominated as it shows the work we are doing at NTU is sector leading.”

Although Bradley fell just short of claiming first prize, Bradley was in the top 10 nominees in the country.

The business graduate then went on to become president in 2018 and he has expressed his delight at how far the university has come in this period.

He added: “The growth has been outstanding. The many awards the university has won has been fantastic, but they are just benefits. It is the core principles that the university is founded on that are important and they remain vital at NTU to this day.”

Bradley will continue to work at his post at Nottingham Trent until at least June 2020, when his term as president ends.
