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 2023 awards

To recognise the many different ways that alumni can make a positive impact, this year's Alumni Achievement Awards have been split into three categories:

  • Rising Star
  • Alumni Impact
  • Contribution to University Life

You can read more about these categories below.
