The British Council has launched the seventh year of a prestigious award celebrating the outstanding achievements of the UK’s international alumni around the world.
The Study UK Alumni Awards are open to alumni living anywhere outside of the UK. Award winners and finalists are leaders in their fields who have used their experience of studying at a UK university to make a positive contribution to their communities, industries and countries. The Study UK Alumni Awards celebrate and showcase the impact and value of a UK higher education and raise the international profile of UK alumni and their former universities
The awards are open to alumni currently residing in any country outside the UK, who have either studied in the UK, at an officially recognised provider of UK university degree level study for a minimum of a term or semester or who have been awarded a full UK degree level qualification (or higher), by a UK university through a local institution overseas, within the last 15 years.
Applications open on 2 September 2020 and close on 30 October 2020. All eligible applicants will be put forward for the global Alumni Awards.
The finalists and winners of the global Alumni Awards will be announced in 2021 and celebrated in a digital campaign that will raise the profile of their story and success. Award winners have the opportunity to raise their international profile, expand their professional networks, and to enhance their careers, through a professional networking visit to the UK (subject to global Covid-19 situation).
British Council will organise the webinar ‘How to apply’ on Tuesday, 13 October at 09.00 UK time for those who are interested to learn more about the application process. Please register here if you would like to join the event.
