NCUK shortlisted for The PIEoneer Awards 2021!


NCUK is pleased to share the news that we’ve been shortlisted for ‘Digital innovation of the year – Assessment and credentials‘ at The PIEoneer Awards 2021!

This is a brand-new category for 2021 with The PIEoneer Awards judges recognising organisations that are excelling in delivering assessments and credentials to international students; the importance of which has grown exponentially in part because of the COVID-19 pandemic.


This years’ PIEoneer Awards will take place on Friday 3 September 2021 and will be a hybrid event with attendees able to join in-person at London’s Guildhall whilst those who aren’t able to attend will be able to take part by viewing a live broadcast.

NCUK is sponsoring the award for ‘Outstanding contribution to the industry‘ which we will be awarding at the ceremony; we wish all shortlisted candidates in this category the best of luck.

Several of NCUK’s partners have been shortlisted for awards. The University of Auckland and University of Birmingham are both shortlisted for the ‘Championing diversity award‘ whilst the former is also shortlisted for the ‘Employability international impact award‘ and the award for ‘Public/private partnership of the year‘. NCUK Study Centre, MPW are shortlisted for the ‘Secondary learning international impact award‘ whilst Brunel University London is shortlisted for the award for ‘International alumni of the year‘.

Being shortlisted for this award alongside other partners in their respective categories is truly a fantastic achievement after the uncertain last year and we look forward to the future and towards the results which will be announced at The PIEoneer Awards ceremony this September!
