Alumni Achievement Awards

Join us in celebrating members of your alumni community who are creating outstanding impact.

A community to be proud of

Newcastle's alumni are a talented group of people achieving great things. We can all take pride in our community, in which many of us are working towards positive change.

To honour those who are making an outstanding impact, we run the Alumni Achievement Awards each year. These form part of Newcastle University Students' Union's Celebrating Success Awards.

About the awards

We are delighted to announce that our Pride of Newcastle University Awards will be hosted in-person at Newcastle Civic Centre on the evening of Wednesday 8 June 2022.

The Awards will recognise the achievements and contributions that our students and alumni have made to university life, extra-curricular activities and the wider community.

Part of the Pride of Newcastle University Awards, the Alumni Achievement Awards recognise exceptional efforts and achievements of our alumni community in two categories – Rising Star and Alumni Impact. 

Rising Star category

This award recognises a rising star, up to 10 years after graduation. They’ll be making an impact in their workplace, industry, community or on University life.

Alumni Impact category

This award recognises alumni at any point after graduation who meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • outstanding contribution to business or industry
  • outstanding contribution to society or community life
  • potential to inspire the next generation of current and prospective students
  • demonstrate involvement with the University, particularly through volunteering
