About Blues awards and what they represent. For those of you just starting your University journey make sure you keep a record of your fixtures during your time here at Bath so when the time comes you are ready to complete the application.

The Blues Awards is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate all that sport has had to offer throughout the year at the University of Bath.

The Blues Awards ceremony is the annual celebration of student sport, organised by The SU Bath. Recipients receive certificates awarded by the University of Bath, providing evidence of dedication and ability to balance sporting commitments alongside their studies. Skills that are fondly looked upon by future employers.

The awards recognise outstanding performance and contribution to student sport here at Bath. We celebrate the sporting achievements of over a hundred and fifty students each year, recognising their hard work and dedication to their sport, club, and university.

Blues include accolades to recognise as many of our sporting population as possible so please do take a look at the awards on offer as many of you will meet the criteria outlined below and you should consider applying in future years.

NB. The criteria below is for the 2024 awards ceremony and is subject to change each year. New criteria will be published in January so come back and check this page out in the new year.

Blues Awards FAQs

I want to put myself forward for an award, does someone else need to submit the application of my behalf?

Anyone can submit an application for themselves. You do not need to be nominated by somebody else.

I cannot remember all the fixtures I have played in.

Go to BUCS Play BUCS Play - (playwaze.com) to see the full list of fixtures from this year and previous years.

There is some info I haven’t filled in on the application form but I have already submitted my form?

Any forms that are submitted incomplete may result in rejection by the Blues Committee with no opportunity to appeal, with the Committees decision being final. So please read the criteria carefully before submitting your nomination. You can complete a new form if you have submitted before the form was completed.

Nominations have closed, can I still submit an application?

We do not accept any applications after the deadline.

I have a question that isn’t answered here what should I do?
