The UA Judging Process 2018

A massive thanks to all students who have submitted their coursework to The Undergraduate Awards (UA) 2018! Our Team have been sincerely enjoying screening your innovative and exciting work ahead of the beginning of the UA Judging Process.

The 2018 Judging Process officially began on the 12th of June. This Process sees panels of expert Judges from academic institutions all over the world collaborate to score your fabulous Submissions. Over 4 Stages throughout the entire summer, our Judges evaluate these Submissions in great detail, ultimately choosing to whom the extremely sought-after position of Global Winner will be awarded! Regional Winners, Highly Commended Entrants, and Commended Entrants will also be recognised among the wide body of talented works, and added to the UA Alumni Portal.

The chosen winners will be announced mid-September, at the end of the Judging Process.

All Winners (Global, Regional, Highly Commended, and Commended) will then be invited to attend the UA Global Summit, which consists of workshops, presentations, and award ceremonies. Judges, speakers of interest, academics, students, and Winners alike can network and discuss their research at this fabulous event, which will take place in Croke Park, Dublin, from 12th-14th of November.

Last year, the Judging Process saw 345 Judges volunteering from over 30 countries to assess the 6,432 submissions to UA.  This year, our Judging panels are even bigger, and are comprised of Judges from over 40 countries!

All Entrants should be thoroughly proud to have their work read by interested experts from across the globe. However, each category can only have one Global Winner! The highest award offered by UA, the Global Winner will present their Winning Submission at the UA Global Summit, have their work published in The Undergraduate Library  and The Undergraduate Journal (stocked in Third-Level libraries all over the world), be formally awarded a Gold Medal, achieve international recognition, and, of course, receive access to UA’s Alumni Portal (a network of scholars and Industry leaders across the world).

We wish all of our talented Entrants the best of luck in relation to the Process, and assure you that will we be in touch to inform all Winners of their success just as soon as possible.
