About The Awards



The BICS Awards will place on Thursday 11th April 2019, with Adjudicator training commencing on Wednesday April 10th 2019. In The Sheraton Hotel, Athlone. 

The National Awards are an opportunity for students and their societies to showcase their numerous achievements from the previous year. Higher education is more than exams, coursework and lectures, and students who are involved in running college societies know this.

The purpose of the National Awards is to recognise the huge effort made by the many individuals who run student societies across Ireland. The National Awards are a means of recognising this dedication and are an opportunity to celebrate the importance and value that societies contribute to college life.
