How to nominate an alumni

Nominations for our 2019 Alumni Awards will open in Spring 2019.

Are you an outstanding alumnus or do you know any outstanding alumni? Maybe someone who's become a rising entrepreneur in the years since they graduated? Perhaps they've contributed to culture or society in some way we should recognise?

Nominate yourself or someone you know for one or more of our awards. There are no restrictions on the number of nominations you can submit, and nominations can be made by graduates, staff, honorary graduates, current students and other members of the community such as your relative, neighbour, friend or colleague.

All you need to do is provide a short but detailed statement describing the qualities and contributions that make your nominee a worthy recipient of an award. The statement should accurately demonstrate how your nominee's contribution has made a difference within their chosen profession or within the community, and why they should be publicly recognised. 

If you have any questions or would like further guidance, please contact us.
