The Alumni Achievement Awards 2020


Join us in celebrating our alumni

The Alumni Achievement Awards will allow us to continue to celebrate and recognise the many and diverse achievements of our growing and vibrant alumni community – locally, nationally and across the world. Following on for the great success of last year’s Alumni Achievement awards, this will be the second Alumni Achievement Awards ceremony, which is intended to be an annual event for us. Former students of the University are engaged in many activities that we should recognise. Some are making a difference in their communities, while others may be creating successful businesses, helping charities or have achieved in the arts. Other alumni may be contributing directly to the life and reputation of the University itself. The Alumni Engagement team feel it is important to recognise and celebrate these achievements annually.

When? 29 October, 6-8pm

Where? Online via Microsoft Teams
