Alumni Awards poster

The Study UK Alumni Awards celebrate UK higher education and the achievements of UK alumni all over the world. Now in its seventh year, more than 1,300 international UK alumni applied from more than 114 countries, representing over 148 UK higher education institutions across the UK.

For the first time this year, the EU is honoured to celebrate UK alumni from across the region. Finalists were selected for their outstanding achievements as business professionals, entrepreneurs and community leaders, and for their important contribution to strengthening collaborative ties between the UK and the EU region.

The three award winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony in February. Award winners have the opportunity to raise their international profile, expand their professional networks and enhance their careers.
