The Global Undergraduate Awards 2021 Programme is currently accepting submissions

27 Jan 2021

The Global Undergraduate Awards is the world’s leading academic awards programme, open to all undergraduate students in almost every academic discipline and attracting submissions from hundreds of universities on every continent.

This is a unique opportunity to have your work recognised by an international panel of expert judges working in some of the world’s top academic institutions. We believe in rewarding students for passion and innovation early in their academic career, to encourage them to continue their work through postgraduate study or employment.

Submitting your entry is quick, simple and free! Through our fully anonymised online submission platform, UA has designed a fair and equal awards programme open to students regardless of background. Submit today for a chance to have your work recognised and awarded at an international level.

Who can submit?
The Global Undergraduate Awards 2021 Programme accepts submissions from undergraduate students and recent graduates from the class of 2020, 2021, or 2022.
An undergraduate student refers to an individual studying full-time for a bachelor's degree, which is usually 3 or 4 years in duration.
UA also accepts coursework from students of five-year degrees where relevant, including medical students, and students of law or architecture.

Individuals who are studying for an undergraduate degree on a part-time basis are eligible to submit, once they have completed two-thirds of the required coursework for their degree.

If you are planning to complete a four-year degree, you are eligible to submit in your third or fourth year of study. If you are planning to undertake a three-year degree, you are eligible to submit in your second or third year of study.

Entrants enrolled in integrated master's/undergraduate master's degrees may only submit coursework that was completed for the bachelor's degree component of their degree. This generally means that work completed for the final year of the degree is classified as postgraduate coursework and therefore ineligible for submission.
What can I submit
Coursework entered must have received an A grade, a 2.1, or equivalent. To find out more about international grade requirements and how to convert your grade, click here.

Students who will not have received their grade before the deadline may still submit if they received a 2.1 or higher overall grade for their most recently-completed academic year.

You can submit up to a maximum of three (3) unique entries to any combination of categories.
