Alumni who graduated  within the last 15 years (from 2001 or later) and live in  Egypt, Ghana, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Turkey and the USA are able to apply who have made a positive contribution to their communities, professions and countries.

The Awards seek to showcase the impact and value of UK education, and the recognised winners and finalists will be leaders in their fields, utilising their UK education as part of their success.

Loughborough University Alumni were nominated for the British Council Alumni Awards 2016, and we would be delighted to see more of our alumni enter and be successful in the awards for 2017. The awards raise the profile of finalists and winners, recognising achievements and provide a platform from which to share outstanding success and inspire others.

Application will open from 7th September until 31st October or you can nominate another alumni for an award between 7th September 2016 and 16th October 2016.

Full details can be found on The British Council website. We wish you every success with the awards and look forward to seeing some Loughborough success!
