Education UK Alumni Awards 2016 now open!

The Education UK Alumni Awards are now open for applications. The awards celebrate the achievements of international alumni who studied at UK universities within the last 10 years, and honour the outstanding achievements made by business professionals, entrepreneurs and community leaders who can demonstrate how their education has impacted on their subsequent success.

Winning an Education Alumni Award will not only shine a spotlight on your achievements and bring you international recognition, it will also help to raise your profile and introduce you to new professional connections.

There are three award categories:

Professional Achievement Award – recognising UK alumni who have distinguished themselves through exemplary leadership and achievements in their professional industry
Entrepreneurial Award – recognising UK alumni who are active in initiating or contributing to innovative new business opportunities that have the potential for strong growth
Social Impact Award – recognising UK alumni who have made an exceptional contribution and commitment to creating positive social change and improving the lives of others

The awards are open to alumni residing in Brazil, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the USA, who studied at a recognised UK higher education institution for a minimum of one term/semester within the past ten years (i/e in/from 2005 or later). Each participating country will present the three award categories mentioned above.

Apply or nominate before 31 October 2015 – for more information about how to enter, visit the British Council website.
