British Council Alumni Awards

British Council Alumni Awards 2017

We are pleased to be participating in the British Council Alumni Awards 2017, celebrating the outstanding achievements of alumni and showcasing the impact and value of a UK higher education

What are the British Council Alumni Awards?

2017 marks the third British Council Alumni Awards. Award winners and finalists are leaders in their fields who have used their experience of studying at a UK university to make a positive contribution to their communities, professions and countries.

The prestige of winning an Alumni Award is far reaching; the benefits to awardees include enhanced global status and strengthened professional networks. All award finalists will be invited to a prestigious award ceremony in their country, with PR and press opportunities that raise their profile and share their success with international audiences. Following the events, awardees will be invited to join our panel of judges, to participate in the judging of future award competitions. Finalists have the opportunity to connect with fellow high-calibre and successful alumni as well as influential guests at their award ceremony, extending and building their professional networks and contacts. 

Find out more from past award winners on the British Council website.
