The British Council Study UK Alumni Awards take place each year and recognise the outstanding achievements of international alumni from UK universities.
These prestigious international awards celebrate UK higher education and the achievements of UK university alumni.
They are open to alumni living outside the UK who, in the last 15 years, have studied at a UK university, at degree level or higher, for at least one term or semester.
The awards are split in to four different categories: Culture and Creativity, Social Action, Science and Sustainability and Business and Innovation - with recipients able to demonstrate how they have used their UK education to bring positive change to their communities, industries and countries.
Award winners are chosen by an expert judging panel who bring together a wealth of international expertise in education, entrepreneurship and national policy. Those who are successful are able to extend their professional network, raise their profile and gain international recognition.
