Over the past year, we’ve been working closely with the Scottish Institute for Enterprise (SIE) as part of an accredited Scottish Innovative Student Awards (SISA) programme. RGU is the first university to achieve SISA accreditation and we’re delighted to see so many of our students taking up this opportunity and working through the various levels of the programme.
By completing one of our accredited modules (which span across a number of the courses) and writing a reflective statement, 109 students from our School of Creative and Cultural Business have successfully achieved the first level of this award, making them ‘Future Thinkers’. A further 18 of these students went on to achieve the second level of the award after participating in a multidisciplinary workshop facilitated by Ann Davidson of the SIE and are ‘Innovation Catalysts’. Incredibly we are now also able to report five Level 3 ‘Innovation Champions’ from the School. Congratulations to Sofia Bonetti, Monica Genova, Sarah Johnson, Mairi Lowe and Eilidh Mellis!
We look forward to continuing our work with the SIE and seeing other students progress through the SISA programme during their time here at RGU.
