Student crowned North West Student of the Year at the Women in Property awards

Congratulations to Emily Bates, a second year MPlan Town & Regional Planning student, who has won a prestigious prize at the annual Women in Property awards.

The awards sought the best ‘Built Environment’ degree students from across the region, and Emily was crowned North West Student of the Year at the virtual ceremony that took place last week.

Over the past 13 years over 1,080 students have been through the awards programme, which explores their coursework, challenges their wider industry knowledge, and encourages them to hone and develop their interpersonal skills.

Through links with industry and developing students’ knowledge of career options, many go on to secure work placements as a direct result of competing in the awards, often translating into permanent positions upon graduation.

Emily will join the other 12 regional winners at a National Awards Ceremony in London on 16 September 2020.
