The Year Abroad Awards 2015


The Year Abroad Awards 2015 are designed to celebrate and reward UK students who have spent time working, studying or volunteering abroad during their degree. The ten categories have been carefully selected to showcase the qualities that epitomise a year abroad student - creativity, bravery, ingenuity, a global mindset and a sense of humour! The deadline is on 13th September 2015. New sponsors and prizes to be announced!


To enter the Year Abroad Awards, you must be a student at a UK university (or have graduated from a UK university within the past year) and have spent up to a year studying, working or volunteering abroad during your degree.
