The Alumni Awards recognise and honour the outstanding achievements of alumni of a UK higher education. Past award winners include Yifan Ling, an internationally best-selling comic book artist, and Ria Sharma, whose organisation ‘Make Love Not Scars’ works with victims of acid attacks in India.

This year, the Alumni Awards are bigger than ever. We have the National Awards, held in twelve different countries; the Regional Awards, featuring alumni from anywhere in the world; and the Global Awards, where winners of the Regional Awards go head to head.
