They have responded to challenges experienced by staff and managers during COVID-19, and have ensured our policies and FAQs have addressed concerns and supported staff. This has been achieved through excellent collaborative working across UCL. In addition, they have responded to the changes in immigration legislation to ensure that staff and managers have the information and resources going forward. They have demonstrated outstanding service and commitment, juggling caring responsibilities, home schooling, and their own illness from covid.

UCL Student's Union
Welcoming 18,000 new students to UCL is always an organisational challenge, but also an absolute priority of Student's Union UCL each year. However, with the absence of face-to-face activity at scale this year, the Union had to radically change how we delivered the largest student induction in the UK. The way that teams from across the Union came together, each brining their unique skills and ideas, enabled us to not only deliver a wide-range of events and activities for our new students, but also to improve in many ways how we engage with large numbers of people at once.
