The Undergraduate Awards Partner University; University of St Andrews is located on east coast of Scotland and is a unique place to study and live. It is known that students of St Andrews often find themselves crossing golf-courses to get to class, or jogging along the beach after dinner. The University has a world-class reputation and offers a diverse range of academic and social activities (over 140 student societies and 50 sports clubs) including some interesting student traditions!
Biomedical Engineering graduate, James Fogarty of Cork Institute of Technology has created a system to enable people with disabilities to play and record music.
The Undergraduate Awards is delighted to announce a 3 year partnership with Western University (The University of Western Ontario, Canada). The UA is always looking to expand its global reach and now Western joins The Undergraduate Awards network along with our other Partners from around the world; Trinity College Dublin in Ireland, University of California Berkeley in the USA, University of St. Andrews in Scotland and King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia.
Today, we celebrate Ireland, the land of Saints and Scholars. However, The Undergraduate Awards realise scholarship is not something tied to one particular geographic region. Much like the Irish diaspora, our reach as the world’s only pan-discipline academic awards is global. Our ever widening group of University Partners stretch right around the world from California to Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, our Affiliates connect universities and undergraduates from the regions in between.
The Undergraduate Awards are delighted to announce their latest partnership with King Abdulazziz University (KAU) in Saudi Arabia.

In 1930, at the age of 29, Ernest O. Lawrence unlocked the gates to the world of the atom with his invention of the cyclotron — a tool destined to become as important to nuclear science as Galileo’s telescope was to astronomy. Lawrence also invented a new way of doing science. His brilliance and willingness to share his discoveries attracted the brightest young scientists of the time to Berkeley. His personal credo was that there was enough research for all, and he rejoiced in the success of others as in his own.
The School of Nursing and Midwifery held its International Winter School from 5th-16th January 2015. Nursing students along with faculty members from participating international universities travelled to Trinity College from the University of Scranton and California State University, Channel Islands to learn about nursing, midwifery and global healthcare issues. The Vice-President for Global Relations, Professor Juliette Hussey, presented the certificates and closed the International Winter School by highlighting the importance of building global relationships and having a forum for the international exchange for the future of nursing and midwifery.
The Undergraduate Awards (UA) acknowledges the excellent academic scholarship done by undergraduates around the world. This past November, the Awards recognised 114 highly commended students from 27 countries for their winning research papers at the UA Global Summit held in Dublin.
