The Study UK Alumni Awards recognise the outstanding achievements made by UK alumni and celebrate the impact and value of a UK higher education. Award winners, finalists and many of the applicants are an inspiration to future generations of students considering a UK education. The Alumni Awards honour UK university alumni within 15 years of their studies at a UK higher education institution in the UK, and who have made a significant contribution to the societies, professions and countries they now live in.
The awards are taking place this year in 14 locations: Egypt, Ghana, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Turkey and the USA. This is the third year of the Study UK Alumni Awards, following a successful pilot year in India, China and the USA in 2015 and an expansion into ten countries last year. The aspiration is for this to be an annual event, organised in collaboration UK government agencies and the UK higher education sector. The Study UK Alumni Awards are now a key part of the Study UK: Discover You campaign – the new Education is GREAT campaign that promotes studying in the UK to prospective international students around the world.
