University of Leeds the Undergraduate Awards

The University of Leeds is delighted to announce the Undergraduate Awards. The awards program is open to full-time undergraduate students from all disciplines in their penultimate and final year of a degree course.

The program creates the opportunity for students to have their undergraduate work published, and recognized as world-leading. Winners are eligible to attend a global summit in Dublin in November of each year.

Who May Eligible:

To eligible, the candidates must be following all the eligibility criteria:

  • The Undergraduate Awards program is open to full-time undergraduate students from all disciplines in their penultimate and final year of a degree course.
  • Part-time students who are studying an undergraduate degree may also take part in awards, on the condition that they have completed two-thirds of their course.
