Nominate your outstanding alumni or encourage them to apply

The Alumni Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of alumni and showcase the impact and value of a UK higher education.

Are your alumni leading the way in their respective field? Are they driving change around the world? The Study UK Alumni Awards recognises students who have come to the UK to study and gone on to do amazing things in their communities, professions or countries.

If you know alumni who have studied at your institution in the UK in the last 15 years, who are now living in one of the participating countries and have gone on to achieve exceptional success, then you can nominate them for one of the awards.

Why enter the competition

The Study UK Alumni Awards regularly reach audiences of more than 100 million each year through mostly organic press and media coverage. By entering the competition, you will be able to discover and celebrate your alumni stories, connect with your alumni and raise the profile of your institution.

The Alumni Award winners will benefit from local, regional and, at the global level, global press and social media coverage, and the three global winners will win a trip to the UK to enhance their professional networks.


Alumni must have:

  • Studied within the last 15 years (i.e. 2004 - 2019)
  • enrolled at an officially recognised (160 institutions) or listed (650 institutions) UK higher education institution
  • at degree level or above
  • either at a UK university in the UK, for a minimum of one term or semester, OR awarded a full UK degree level qualification (or higher), by a recognised or listed UK HEI, outside the UK.

How to apply 

Applications can be made through the awards website.

Deadline to nominate your alumni is Sunday 13 October 2019.

Deadline for alumni to apply themselves, or complete their application if you have nominated them, is Monday 28 October 2019. Applications for Azerbaijan, China and Qatar close on Sunday 22 September 2019.
