The Undergraduate of the Year Awards were set up to celebrate the UK’s best undergraduates. Being the best means combining academic excellence and the ability to pass a series of challenging assessments with good written and communication skills as well as the interpersonal skills to shine in assessment centres. Each award is partnered by a prominent employer who provides a fantastic prize for the winner, which could include a paid internship, a trip abroad or other exclusive opportunities. Read more about the awards

This year’s thirteen winners were announced at the Grand Final on Friday 21 April at East Wintergarden in Canary Wharf.
