The SFCA Student Award for International Understanding 2013/14
Coordinated by the International Network, the Sixth Form Colleges’ Association Student Award for International Understanding aims to promote and celebrate the achievements of Sixth Form College students and to champion and build upon the reputation of Sixth Form Colleges as high quality, inclusive and innovative institutions.

Every Sixth Form College is invited to nominate five students who have a commitment to the values of internationalism and can demonstrate achievement in the five areas that are set out in the criteria. Although colleges may nominate five students, only one student from each college will be approved for the award this academic year.
