Women inProperty is focused on enhancing the role of women in the property and construction sector and is keen to encourage and nurture the role models of tomorrow through its Student Awards programme. This National Student Awards were launched to celebrate the wealth of talent, enthusiasm and ambition coming into the industry through our Universities. Open to second year, female students studying a Built Environment course, it is now into its eighth year of running a successful Awards programme. Women in Property's aspiration, as an organisation, is to recognise excellence, encourage aptitude and nurture the role models of tomorrow, hence the Awards;

  • Highlight to industry the necessity to link with universities early in the educational process
  • Widen the opportunities open to students as they progress through their university career, often with paid work placements
  • Improve the knowledge of those at university on the career options available

At the South West Event held on 5 June 2014, of the 13 South West regional winners UWE Bristol was well represented across all the disciplines offered in the Department of Architecture and Built Environment and the Department of Geography and Environmental Management by Hannah Batchelor, Louise Chambers, Emily Johnson, Verity Moulder, Bethany Selwyn and Keely Vanderlinden.
