Spiros Soulis: Alumni Awards 2017–18 Ambassador Greece

Spiros Soulis, Alumni Awards 2017 Ambassador Greece

We’re delighted to have Spiros Soulis joining us again this year as the Alumni Awards Ambassador in Greece.

Spiros Soulis was born in Athens, Greece. Immediately after high school he moved to London, where he studied Architecture at London Metropolitan University. After completing his Bachelor’s degree, he went on to postgraduate studies in Advanced Architecture and Interior Design at the same institution. On successful completion of his studies, he joined Foster + Partners, one of the world’s most prestigious architecture firms, led by the visionary British architect Lord Norman Foster. He then continued his successful career in architecture, design and the media in Greece. For more details and Spiros’ full bio, please see the ‘Downloads’ section below.

‘It’s a great pleasure and an honour for me to be the Ambassador for the Study UK Alumni Awards in Greece again this year and to support this exciting British Council initiative, which is open to residents in Greece for the second consecutive year. Studying in the UK offered me everything that I had expected to gain and more, and I invite alumni of UK universities to apply for one of this year’s Awards! This is an opportunity for you to gain recognition for your achievements and raise your professional profile by sharing your stories with the world, while at the same time inspiring a new generation of Greeks to follow the wonderful path which has enabled you to make your dreams come true!’ – Spiros Soulis
