British Council launches prestigious international awards celebrating UK Higher Education and distinguished alumni achievements
Alumni Awards 2017
Share your story and inspire others: the Alumni Awards 2017
If you're selected as a finalist or award winner, you'll benefit from raising your public profile, expanding your professional network, and enhancing your career

The British Council has launched the fourth year of a prestigious award celebrating the outstanding achievements of the UK’s international alumni around the world. For the first time, University of London International Programmes graduates can enter and share their amazing achievements, success stories and the impact they are making all over the world.

The Awards recognise and honour alumni from around the world who have used their UK education to make a difference in their professions, communities and countries. We know that there are many exceptional stories to tell and encourage you to apply for the Alumni Awards so that you can share your story and inspire others. Your dedication to online and distance learning, especially when many of you have studied alongside work and family commitments, deserves to be celebrated.

Alumni Awards 2017The Alumni Awards are open to alumni currently residing in any country outside the UK, who have either studied in the UK or 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 within the last 15 years. This final category means that International Programmes graduates are also eligible to apply.

If you're selected as a finalist or award winner, you'll benefit from raising your public profile, expanding your professional network, and enhancing your career. The three global award winners will win a trip to the UK.

Legendary shoe designer and UK alumnus, Professor Jimmy Choo OBE, Global Ambassador of the Alumni Awards, said: “I’m delighted to support the Alumni Awards as Global Ambassador once again this year. Studying in the UK was an experience that changed my life and contributed to my success today. It is an honour to be supporting today’s recent outstanding UK university alumni by sharing their success stories and positive impact on the world."
