The Study UK Alumni Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of alumni and showcase the impact and value of a UK higher education. For the second consecutive year, Greece is honoured to be hosting the Alumni Awards in partnership with the British Embassy Athens, the British Graduates Society (BGS) and the British-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce.
Finalists and award winners have the opportunity to raise their international profile, expand their professional networks and enhance their careers. Winners in Greece will be announced in January 2018 and will then be entered into the Regional Alumni Awards, alongside applicants from all other countries. Winners of the Regional Alumni Awards will be announced in March 2018, and entered into the Global Alumni Awards. The three Global Alumni Award winners will be announced in April 2018 and invited to the UK for a professional development opportunity.

Spiros Soulis: Alumni Awards 2017–18 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
