The National Undergraduate Employability (NUE) Awards celebrate excellence and outstanding contributions by employers, universities and students across the UK. As well as announcing each category winner, the event also includes the exclusive unveiling of the Top 100 Undergraduate Employers, Top 30 Medium-sized Undergraduate Schemes and the Top Small to Medium-sized Undergraduate Employers.

Truly unique

The NUE Awards is a truly unique event that stands alone in the undergraduate recruitment sector. As the only awards ceremony of its type, we have helped to define excellence within this niche market.


Rewarding excellence

The NUE Awards have always been about rewarding those employers, universities and students who deserve recognition for their efforts, and celebrating the excellence they bring to the market. By going that extra mile they encourage us all to work harder and live up to those standards.


Our inclusive awards exist to recognise everyone involved in the undergraduate recruitment market that has made a difference. This includes students, universities, employers and agencies.

Supported by the best

As the NUE Awards is the only event of its kind within the undergraduate recruitment market, we’re supported by all of the key networks in the sector. This includes the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR), the Work Based and Placement Learning Association (ASET) and the Association of Graduate Careers Advisory Services (AGCAS).

Exciting and inspiring speakers

Our event is about more than just handing out awards. We also offer you a genuine insight into the wider undergraduate recruitment market, with thought-provoking sessions and speeches from big names in the industry. And let’s not forget about our special guest speakers!

A chance to network

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 and socialise your socks off. The above points are what make the NUE Awards great, but it’s the opportunity to network with industry experts that makes it outstanding.
