Nominate a Surrey graduate for Vice-Chancellor’s Alumni Awards

Do you know a former Surrey student who has made an outstanding contribution to their field industry or society in the past three years?

The Vice-Chancellor’s Alumni Awards honour alumni across the world, and, in our 50th anniversary year, Professor Max Lu has introduced some new awards to further recognise graduate achievements.

The categories are:

•             Alumni Achievement Award

•             Lifetime Achievement Award

•             Young Achiever Award

•             Volunteer of the Year

The overall Vice-Chancellor’s Alumnus of the Year 2016 will be chosen from the winners in the Alumni Achievement Award category.

Last year research scientists Mrs Ameenah Gurib-Fakim was named the 2015 winner after a highly successful twelve months which saw her elected as President of Mauritius, the first woman to hold the ceremonial position.

Each winner’s name is added to a commemorative plaque in the library and there is a celebration lunch and presentation.

More details are available on our awards webpage and you can nominate online.

Please help us celebrate our amazing graduates!
