Your application will be reviewed by a selection panel made up of an Arts SU Sabbatical Officer and the relative Arts SU College Events Coordinator

The panel makes selections in order to showcase a representative mix of creative disciplines, levels of study and colleges attended, rather than making a critical judgement about the work submitted.
