Vice Chancellor's Global Graduate Prize
This prize, supported by the Vice–Chancellor, recognises an individual student for their global graduate attributes and is open to students on all three campuses - UK, China and Malaysia.
Why does the Vice–Chancellor sponsor this prize?
By the time you graduate, we hope that our academic and extracurricular opportunities will have allowed you to grow professionally, to develop as a person and to formulate exciting plans for the future. Everyone’s journey is different and we’re proud of how our students mature and broaden their horizons.
You will leave us not just with an internationally–recognised degree but with a critical way of thinking and the ability to work independently. Although you might not have all the answers, you’ll have the skills and aptitude to tackle any questions - qualities that will help you succeed in whatever you choose to do.
What are we looking for in your application?
We are looking for evidence that you can demonstrate a range of ‘Global Graduate Attributes’, that not only reflect your education at Nottingham, but will prepare you effectively for the globalised world of work and for continuous personal and professional development.

- The acquisition of a broader international perspective.

"I'm very happy and grateful, not only to be thought for the Vice-Chancellor's Global Graduate Prize but also to be a part of a global university, emerging as a global citizen.
The opportunities presented by the university have empowered me to be ambitious, and to pursue my passion and enthusiasm that in turn helps me to inspire and invigorate others.
Just like the great Nottinghamian Sir Jesse Boot, I aspire to be an entrepreneur and philanthropist who contributes to society, the economy, and most importantly, who changes the world for the better."
