Celebrating and rewarding excellence in the undergraduate market across the UK

Celebrating Excellence

It’s important to take a step back and appreciate the dedication that goes into the day to day of everybody who contributes to the undergraduate industry. This is exactly why the NUE Awards have been created to recognise, reward and celebrate employers, universities and students for all of their hard work and incredible achievements.


One of a Kind

As the only Awards ceremony of its type, we have helped to define excellence within a niche market. From creating spotlights on factors such as innovation and diversity among employers, to showcasing students who have made an impact whilst on work experience, the Awards are truly unique to this industry.

Everybody’s Welcome

The Awards are open to everyone who makes a difference in the industry, including:

  • Students
  • Employers
  • Universities
  • Agencies  


Our Awards bring together all of the key networks within the sector to provide the best experience and insights for those who participate and attend the awards. Our partners include:

  • Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR) 
  • Work Based and Placement Learning Association (ASET)
  • Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS)


Creating an event which is about more than just winning is essential. As a result, the day also includes motivational, insightful and thought-provoking sessions from big names in the industry.

Every year we invite a special guest speaker to discuss their journey to success in order to inspire our audience; past speakers include Rebecca Adlington (OBE), Levi Roots (‘reggae, reggae sauce’ – sing it with us!) and Jo Fairley (co-founder of Green & Blacks).


Of course, we don’t want you to be sat down all day! That’s why we offer you plenty of time to network your way around the room, develop new relationships and toast to your successes together.
