Charalampos Piperidis is the winner of IELTS Award 2018
The British Council IELTS Award has been given for the fourth consecutive year. The Award is designed to assist a high-calibre individual who has a strong motivation to develop his/her career and who can also demonstrate that he/she has the potential to contribute to society with his/her studies.
The application procedure ran for six months with hundreds of successful applications meeting the criteria set. After an initial pre-screening stage, which involved close evaluation of all the criteria and each candidate’s personal statement, five applicants were selected to go through to the interview stage with representatives from the British Council's IELTS and Education teams.
At the final evaluation stage, Charalampos Piperidis was selected as the winner of the IELTS Award 2018. Charalampos will study for an MSc in Management in the 2018–19 academic year at the university of his choice: the University of Bath in the UK. The IELTS Award 2018 and the British Council will cover his tuition fees.
Charalampos aims to combine the knowledge gained from his first degree in Literature with those of Management with the aim of transforming ‘aspiring ideas into reality’ by working on an online education platform.
As the IELTS Award 2018 winner, Charalampos will be a true IELTS ambassador, networking within the IELTS community and sharing their experience with other students wishing to pursue higher education studies.
