Are you the Undergraduate of the Year?

The TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards launched four years ago and have grown to feature 12 awards and, for the 2012 competition, were entered by more than 4,000 students from over 100 different universities.

The Awards were set up to identify and celebrate the UK’s best undergraduates in specific areas, like subject of degree (law, engineering etc), year group (first years) or other categories (future leaders, women, commercial excellence). Being the best means having a combination of academic excellence, the ability to pass a series of difficult online assessments, good written communication and finally the interpersonal skills necessary to compete with other students in assessment centres run by the sponsoring organisation. The final shortlist of ten are invited to the Awards event in London in April where the winners are announced.

Each award is sponsored by a prominent graduate recruiter who provides a fantastic prize for the winner, including a paid internship.

Each award has clearly stated entry criteria, including year of study and minimum educational requirement. Students who don’t meet the entry criteria will not be considered.

Undergraduates from all UK universities are eligible – if you meet the entry criteria – and past winners have come from over 30 different universities.
