About the Awards

The Awards is entering its eighth year in 2017, benchmarking success across all organisations, universities and students in the undergraduate employability market.

Roll back the clock eight years ago and the inaugural Awards were held in Oxford Brookes University, organised by the team behind RateMyPlacement.co.uk, offering students peer-to-peer advice on where to choose a placement or internship.

The Awards have grown considerably in reputation and stature within the industry, supported by a whole host of industry thought leaders, including AGR, AGCAS, ASET, PlaceNet and PwC. They are now the only Awards in the undergraduate space and have been rebranded to the National Undergraduate Employability Awards to ensure they represent the widening pool of work experience opportunities available to students in today’s competitive market.
