This year DUSA Media launched their first ever DUSA Media Awards Ceremony.
Traditionally the hard work of our student media channels has been recognised via the two media award categories presented and the President’s Annual Awards Dinner.
This year it was felt that given the progression and development of DUSA Media as a whole, the outlets warranted their own ceremony and rather than stick to the traditional award titles, DUSA Media decided to have a little fun and put their own spin on things.
Despite a number of comical award titles, it is apparent that year on year DUSA Media is excelling and none of this would have been possible if it hadn’t been for the hard work of the wider DUSA Media team so congratulations to you all!
The winners of this year’s DUSA Media Awards are;
The Magdalen | Student Magazine
Award for Prolific Prose presented to Kate McAuliffe
For consistently varied and high quality writing and contributions to the magazine over the year.

This year the DUSA Executive introduced a new and very special award which won’t be awarded annually but instead will only be given if there has been a student who has been particularly impressive during their time involved in DUSA. This award is to recognise an individual who has went above and beyond in their commitment to the organisation and is for an individual who has not just been involved in a society, media outlet or the SRC but someone who has actively been involved with all aspects of DUSA.
This year the winner of the Outstanding Contribution to DUSA award is Niall Christie.
The Liar Bar will be open extra late for the general election results as they are announced live between Thursday night and Friday morning. With the polls too close to call it’s set to be the most exciting general election night in many years. See the results on all 17 HD screens of The Liar bar where, for one night only, we will be serving FREE Dominos pizza (from midnight, first come first served) and FREE soft drinks (from 2:30am until close). Sales of alcohol will not be permitted after 2:30am.
Through the Dundee Student Council (DSC), Dundee University Students’ Association and Abertay University Students’ Association reached out to all local General Election candidates standing in Dundee East and Dundee West, with a “Memorandum of Support and Cooperation for Students Studying in Dundee”. This document was created to ensure that Dundee students would receive the best representation possible at the Westminster Parliament from their elected members and that there were established shared goals for the DSC and future MPs to work on together. The document also received support from Dundee and Angus College Students’ Association, ensuring that Further and Higher education students would be included together.
Signatories of the Memorandum agreed that:
Students who choose to study in Dundee are integral to the economic, social and cultural life of the City.
International students should be welcomed and supported whilst studying and after they graduate.
Students have a right not to be exploited by employers in terms of pay or hours worked.
Students who are disabled, carers or parents should be supported in their studies.
Students from the rest of the UK should be represented in issues relevant to them by their local Dundee MPs.
Politicians should inspire student participation in democracy.
All candidates from the Scottish National Party, Labour, the Scottish Green Party, the Liberal Democrats, the Trade Union and Socialist Coalition and Cannabis is Safer than Alcohol Party agreed to support and sign the document, which was countered signed by a member of the DSC. The only party who did not sign was the Conservatives with the candidate in Dundee East refusing to do so and the candidate in Dundee West not responding to attempts to contact her.
The document also sets out a range of future aims and goals which the DSC will work with the eventual winners in Dundee East and West to enhance the student experience in the city, including:
Ensuring that eligible students are aware of and have fair access to benefits they are entitled too.
Ensuring RUK students who study in Dundee have their interests represented, protected and supported.
Ensuring that students have the opportunity to gain meaningful employment opportunities and that students are protected from unpaid exploitation.
DUSA President, Iain MacKinnon said, “The process of writing this document and discussing it with candidates has been an excellent one, and has definitely made all those standing in Dundee think about how important students are to the life of this City. It’s unfortunate that the Conservative candidates have made the decision not to sign, but the fact the other thirteen candidates in Dundee have done so shows that the students of the constituency will be listened to in the next Parliament.”
Abertay SA President, Robyn Donoghue said, ‘Students’ Associations across the UK have been engaging students to make sure they utilise their vote. Here in Dundee students are a crucial part of the economy, culture and vibrancy of our city. We hope that this process fosters an effective working relationship between politicians and students moving forward and that we debunk the myth that students aren’t interested in politics. Student’s will be mobilising on Thursday to make sure their voice is heard and there will likely be a few bleary eyed students come Friday morning after watching the votes roll in.’
The time has come to once again recognise the hard work of the staff here at the University of Dundee. The nominations have been submitted and the lucky few have been shortlisted. For the first time ever we have introduced a prize to recognise the hard work of non-teaching staff. Congratulations to all!
