Undergraduate of the Year awards

The 2021 Undergraduate of the Year Awards are now open.

The awards are a fantastic way for students to win valuable experience in the form of internships and placements, as well as gaining insight into the graduate job application process. With numerous awards on offer, there is an opportunity for every student regardless of university, course, or year of study. Each award is partnered by big-name organisations (such as L'Oréal, Rolls-Royce and HSBC) who are keen to offer unique work opportunities and various prizes to successful candidates. et students involved!


This year's award categories are:

To enter the awards, students must put themselves forward and apply online via the Undergraduate of the Year Awards website. The application process includes essay-style questions and psychometric tests, not unlike those that students may experience in the graduate job application process. Successful undergraduates will be invited to an interview and/or assessment centre with the award partner, and the shortlisted students will be invited to a prestigious award ceremony taking place either in person or virtually in April 2021.

Deadline for applications - 01 February 2021.
