The Study UK Alumni Awards 2020-21 recognise and celebrate the benefits that studying at a UK university has had upon the individual, their community and country.
What began as a pilot in 2015 in three countries is now a global awards programme open to alumni in every country, celebrating outstanding alumni around the world. All alumni are entered into the Global Alumni Awards, with additional national-level awarding ceremonies in 12 countries: Azerbaijan, China, Egypt, Greece, India, Kuwait, Malaysia, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Thailand and Turkey. The finalists and winners of the Global Alumni Awards will be announced online as part of a digital campaign to promote their stories from February 2021.
This year, a record number of applications were received from alumni in more than 140 countries, representing alumni from more than 80 per cent of all UK higher education institutions.
In future years we hope to continue to celebrate and share the inspirational stories of many more outstanding UK alumni, showcasing the value and impact of a UK higher education.
