We are delighted to partner with Allstate NI to recognise Ulster University students and graduates and the positive impact they are making to both the University and wider community. Three awards are presented each year- Convocation Student of the Year, Distinguished Graduate of the Year and Alumni Volunteer of the Year- all celebrating the momentous work being undertaken by undergraduate students and alumni, and we are proud to recognise their achievements in this way. The awards are presented during graduation periods each year.
Convocation Student of the Year Award
The Allstate NI Convocation Undergraduate Student of the Year Award is made to an undergraduate student who has demonstrated significant personal achievement or a substantial contribution to University life. The award is presented during the University's summer graduation period.
Distinguished Graduate of the Year Award
The prestigious Allstate NI Distinguished Graduate of the Year Award is made to a graduate in recognition of outstanding achievement in their chosen field and is presented during winter graduations.
Past winners have come from varying fields including business, science, sport and education, and all have made a significant contribution in their area.
Graduate Volunteer of the Year Award
The Allstate NI Graduate Volunteer Award recognises an Ulster University graduate’s significant commitment to the University through giving their time and expertise to help students, staff and fellow graduates. This is a new award which will be presented during winter graduations each year.
