International Alumni Awards

To mark our Diamond Jubilee, we are thrilled to be celebrating the wide and varied achievements of our international alumni community; those graduates who have gone on to be particularly successful in their chosen field and/or contribute to society in outstanding ways.

We are inviting nominations under one of four categories:

1. Science and Sustainability Award

Climate action, clean energy, medicine, sustainable cities and communities, engineering, industry and construction.

2. Culture and Creativity Award

Humanities. Arts, design, media, video, TV, music, bloggers, vloggers, Youtubers etc.

3. Social Action Award

Reducing inequality, poverty and hunger. Education and upskilling. Peace and justice.

4. Business and Innovation Award

Entrepreneurship, business.

How to be considered for an award:

If you are an international graduate who would like to be considered for an award, please contact your former academic department or a member of staff with whom you worked closely while a student.

  • Staff can nominate alumni by sending their recommendations to laura.spencer@canterbury.ac.uk confirming in no more than 500 words why they think their chosen alum is a worthy winner
  • Staff can nominate any number of alumni (stating clearly under which category they would like their nominee(s) to be considered)
  • Nominees must have been registered as either an International or European student during their time at Christ Church
  • Nominations should be submitted between 01 and 30 April 2022

Winners will be selected by a panel of judges drawn from across the University and announced during our planned Global Gathering in May. You are welcome to email Laura Spencer with any questions.

Global Gathering

Postponed until further notice

We are delighted to announce plans to host a Diamond Jubilee end-of-academic-year gathering in honour of our international students, partners and alumni. Join us in celebrating our International activities by reminiscing, connecting with friends and celebrating your place in our vibrant international alumni community.

The Global Gathering will culminate with our International Alumni Awards, an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our international alumni and to showcase the impact and value of a Christ Church education. We look forward to sharing the stories of those who have gone on to make a difference in their professions, communities and countries. Could it be your achievements that we celebrate?
