Being named as a Global Winner, Regional Winner or even a Highly Commended Entrant, means you are in the top of your field. The Undergraduate Awards identifies and recognises the most creative and nuanced arguments and ideas coming out at undergraduate level internationally. The Global Winners are published in our annual academic journal. The journals are sent to every Affiliate Institution’s library and is often requested by academics as a directory of the finest undergraduates from every discipline. You can see previous journals here. This recognition at undergraduate level can be catalytic when pursuing further studies, or your chosen career.
