Graduation high five

Distinguished Alumnus Award

About the award

The Distinguished Alumnus Award goes to a University of Buckingham alumnus who, in the opinion of the judges, has made an outstanding contribution to society.

We are seeking alumni who have made a significant contribution, achieved fame or recognition, or have achieved great things out of the limelight.

Graduate nominees can be working in any field or sector from medicine to engineering, from the business world to the voluntary and not-for-profit sectors.

The winner will feature in the alumni magazine, The Independent, as well as in the monthly email to alumni and on the website.

Who is eligible?

All former students are eligible to be nominated including “occasional” students who attended the University on exchanges from the USA in the 1970s and 1980s and students who did not complete their courses.

Who chooses the winner?

The judges will be the Vice-Chancellor, the Head of Alumni Relations and the Chairman of the University of Buckingham Alumni Association.

The award will be presented at the annual Reunion Dinner in October 2019 (date to be confirmed).
