Alumni Awards 2017: Nominations now open

We're delighted to announce that the nominations for the 2017 Alumni Awards are now open!

Now in their second year, our annual Alumni Awards seek to recognise the excellence and achievement of individuals within our network. The actions of our alumni reflect the excellence of a USW education and our mission to provide not only innovative education and world class graduates, but also culturally aware global citizens making positive strides.


There are seven Award categories this year and we're delighted to be partnering with Kier Group who are sponsoring one of our new entrepreneurial categories.

  • Inspiring the Next Generation Award
  • Excellence in Service Award
  • GOLD Award (Graduate of the Last Decade) Award
  • Distinguished Alumni Award
  • Emerging Entrepreneur Award - sponsored by Kier Group
  • Accomplished Entrepreneur Award
  • Contribution to Welsh Life and Culture Award

Nominations are now open and the deadline for submission is midnight GMT on Friday 1 September 2016. We invite the alumni community - plus fellow students, staff and organisations working with USW talent -  to nominate individuals worthy of recognition.

So, whether you value the efforts that one of your classmates gives to ensuring your cohort remains connected or perhaps you have admiration for a former student you know who goes that extra mile to support student career or placement initiatives, these Awards are the opportunity to honour our community champions.
