About the UA
Cited as the ultimate champion for high-potential undergraduates, The Undergraduate Awards is the world’s largest academic awards programme. It is uniquely pan-discipline, identifying leading creative thinkers through their undergraduate coursework.
The Undergraduate Awards provides top performing students with the support, network and opportunities they require to raise their profiles and further their career paths, as well as coming to Dublin for an all-expenses-paid trip to receive their medal.
Why Enter the UA?
Past UA winners talk about the submission process and what the UA programme has meant for them.
Affiliate Universities are institutions that work with UA in promoting the programme each year on their campus. The Affiliate Universities demonstrate the diversity of the participants each year, and also reflect the global reach of the programme.
The Submission Process
The Undergraduate Awards 2016 programme is open to all penultimate and final year undergraduate students in a degree course, as well as those graduating in 2016, from all disciplines. We invite students to enter both outstanding academic papers and research, as well as visual arts portfolios using our online forms. The deadline for the 2016 programme is May 2016.
Winners are published in the annual academic Undergraduate Journal, as well as being invited to the UA Global Summit in Dublin, Ireland. This is an all-expenses-paid three-day networking and brainstorming event which brings the world’s top students together for a series of inspirational lectures, workshops and discussions. Winners and Highly Commended students also gain access to the UA Alumni Network.
