Alumni Awards 2020 Ambassador Greece

We are delighted to have Maria Nikoltsiou, journalist and news presenter, joining us as the Alumni Awards 2020 Ambassador in Greece!

Maria said: ‘It is a great pleasure and an honour for me to be the Ambassador for the Study UK Alumni Awards 2020 in Greece. The opportunity to combine the merits and benefits of a free spirited, yet rigorous, education with exposure to an international lifestyle and a great culture shaped by a spirit of openness and democracy, was indeed a unique one. I am confident that UK universities will remain a pillar of our civilised societies, giving to millions of students unique means and methods to serve their lives and the lives of others, and contribute to social causes as well.
