Fani Apospori is the winner of IELTS Award 2022

The £10,000 British Council IELTS Award has been given for the eighth 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 process ran for four months, with approximately 100 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, Fani Apospori was selected as the winner of the IELTS Award 2022. Fani will attend a MSc Literature and Modernity: 1900 to the Present in the 2022-23 academic year at the university of her choice: The University of Edinburgh. The British Council with the £10,000 IELTS Award 2022 will cover part of his tuition fees.

Fani holds a Greek and English Lieterature degree from the Kapodistrian University of Athens. She chose to pursue a postgraduate degree in MSc Literature and Modernity: 1900 to the Present at The University of Edinburgh because she believes that ‘literature is a catalyst in the practical transformation of society and one of those essential disciplines that sought to shed light on the ‘human condition’.

 Through this master's degree, Fani aspires to investigate in depth the interaction of literature with psychogeography and to discover ways in which literature can function as a therapeutic tool in psychological processes. As she stated ‘I believe that this course forms an excellent basis for realising my future aspirations which are centered around the applicability of literature on society’.

As the IELTS Award 2022 winner, Fani will be a true IELTS ambassador, networking within the IELTS community and sharing her experience with other students wishing to pursue higher education studies.
