As the Judging Process enters its final stage, our 2017 Global Winners will be announced next Tuesday, 19th September on our website and social media, so remember to watch this space!
We would also like to take this opportunity and congratulate all of the brilliant 2017 Highly Commended Entrants once again. As a Highly Commended Entrant of The Undergraduate Awards, your work has now been identified as among the best undergraduate coursework globally, and we hope that this achievement will give you the confidence to realise your abilities and pursue your goals.
Furthermore, you are also now part of the UA Alumni Network, an international network of scholars and industry leaders which is designed to foster international collaboration between alumni and the sharing of ideas. Your works will also be featured on The Undergraduate Library, a new UA project which will offer students the chance to gain a wider audience for their work, and also browse a directory of other exceptional coursework.
This year, The Undergraduate Awards has received a record number of 6,432 submissions from 299 institutions in 47 countries. 62% of submissions came from students who identify as female, 35% from students who identify as male and 3% prefer not to disclose. In 20 of the 25 categories, there were more submissions from female students.
In 2017, the top 5 largest categories in The Undergraduate Awards are Literature (724), Psychology (573), Politics & International Relations (441), History (425), and Social Sciences: Anthropology & Cultural Studies (381). Literature was also our most diverse category with submissions from 92 different institutions from all 7 regions.
With such a large submission pool, our Judging Panels have hard at work all summer to assess all the papers, and we would like to thank them for their time and efforts. It has been a long journey, and we are very excited to share the news with everyone!
And don’t forget, the 2018 Undergraduate Awards Programme is now open for submissions! If you have graduated in 2017 or are graduating in 2018 & 2019, you are eligible to submit! So why not step into the spotlight and earn international recognition for all the hard works you have done?
