It is dedicated to honouring the remarkable accomplishments of UK alumni worldwide, said a statement.

The Study UK Alumni Awards feature four categories to spotlight exceptional achievements and impact in various fields: Science and Sustainability, Culture and Creativity, Social Action and Business and Innovation.

Eligible applicants will have the opportunity to compete on both the Global and National stages of the Alumni Awards.

All eligible applicants will be put forward for the global Alumni Awards. 

The finalists and winners of the global Alumni Awards will be announced in 2024 and celebrated in a digital campaign that will raise the profile of their story and success.
