NCUK Prize Awards

Each year, NCUK awards academic prizes to students with the best academic results from the NCUK Global Network (prizes are only eligible for students who have successfully enrolled at an NCUK University). The annual prize fund exceeds £50,000, and individual prizes range from £50 to £1,000.

To showcase the achievements of these top students, who are just starting out on their university course, NCUK hosts an Annual Prize Award ceremony in the UK. This ceremony celebrates student achievement and gives Study Centre and University staff the chance to come together and congratulate their students in person.
